    If I have added a contact manually to the phone, how do I change which email account it is linked to.

    I have contacts which are linked to my university email address but I'd rather they were attached to my live account

    Tell the phone to sync contacts to Live and not to the other email account. Settings /email+accounts.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I don't have an option to sync contacts in my Live account- only my gmail account has the option to sync contacts. My Live account only has a checkbox for email. I have seen this mentioned by others; how do I sync to my Live account instead of google?
