I have my contacts on gmail. They were imported when I added the account to the device.

Now, I have edited some of them on the phone but the changes did not appear on gmail. Then I modified some on gmail and they did not appear on the phone. There is not sync history(Settings>Sync and Backup>Sync) as well. In account settings I selected Sync only(and deselected Instant messaging, Email and Sharing).

How do I force sync so that changes are uploaded/downloaded?

sync with Google account is at this point enabled to only one direction (from internet to the phone). There are other question you can vote for improvement.

This is correct.

Note that you can force re-sync (still only one way) by opening your google account in jolla-settings/Accounts and then Accepting / Saving (you don't have to change anything). Data added to the contacts locally should be kept, but the new remote data will be added etc.
