    Hey everyone,

    Currently all my contacts are on my exhange server which i use for work. I want my contacts to be on my outlook.com so if i ever leave or the exhange is down all my contacts are on outlook.com
    now i exported all my contacts and imported them into outlook.com but they do not sync with the phone. I want to be able to edit my contacts or add new ones on the phone or outlook.com and they ofcourse sync which each other, just like gmail.

    Thx guys

    Click the arrow to the right of where it says Outlook, and select people.
    Then go into the settings

    On your phone, in people hubs go into settings and filters and make sure your outlook.com is visible. (did that part off top of head as wife stole phone for wordament so will check that again when she is done)

    Mine only shows e-mail as well, but it shows my contacts and calendar from that account. Go into your calendar settings, you should see the outlook.com account there as well. Are you seeing the contacts on the outlook.com site? Is your exchange account also on your phone? If so you won't see duplicates, if you open a contact you should see a little icon that looks like a link on a chain on the bottom. It will show you which accounts that contact is listed. For example my wife is on my exchange account and my outlook.com account, so in the people hub it shows her with 2 links (Actually 5 with facebook, twitter, linkedin) but you get the point.

    Fins,
    It must be a bug cause after i looked at the calendar and it showed the correct information, my contacts finally appeared.

    Thx for the help!
