    Is it possible? I mean, its not necessary because the wonderful integration and aggregation of accounts on WP7 makes it seamless, but just the same I NEVER use my gmail account for email and my contacts are only there because of my previous Android phone. Apparently going from Windows Mobile 6.x to Android was no problem to populate my Google contact info?!?

    Anyhow, basically the only reason I need to maintain my Google account is for my contact information. I've been an MSN account owner for 20 years. So how do I copy or merge my Google contact information to my Windows Live contacts? Manually, it would be a lot of work that wouldn't be worth my time. But I'd rather quit using my google account and remove it from my WP7 phone.

    You can try exporting your contacts from Gmail as CSV file, then you can import the CSV file into Windows Live. That's what I did.

    Not very elegant, but I guess if it works... is it safe to assume that export to CSV and import to CSV are both native functions of the web interfaces for both? So I go to Gmail and I'll find "export to CSV" to create a file on my PC and then go the Windows Live and I'll find "import contacts from CSV"?

    Yes, that works great, much like the integration on the phone itself. However, I would like to get rid of my google/gmail account, and if I do that I would lose the contact information that is linked because it is linked rather than merged/copied, right??

    I also have been unable to find where to import a CSV into Live. When I go to the import function of managing contacts, it seems I can only link other accounts. It is SO frustrating that this isn't easier to do.

    <nevermind> I finally figured out that I have to choose to import Outlook contacts in order to import a CSV. So intuitive... but I won't complain so long as I can figure it out. :-)

    Just link your contacts to your Google account, and from now on add contacts to your Windows Live account.
