    Hey guys!

    Does anybody know how to do this?

    I currently have my iPhone synced to my google contacts via cardDAV and everything is good and well.

    Just bought the Lumia 920 and slowly setting things up!

    I linked my google contacts in my outlook.com account and the people hub in both my laptop and online shows google contacts. But my phones people hub doesn't show a thing!

    Please let me know what I am doing wrong!

    Thanks

    i used the outlook connector and sync with hotmail service, which will sync contacts from outlook to hotmail then to your windows phone hotmail account. Just got to get contacts into outlook from Iphone, which, i am sad to say, a very difficuly thing to do. Outlook and Iphone just do not get along. There are a few independent programs that claim the pull contacts from iphone and create a csv file, and then import into outlook. But when i tried it, it worked about halfway (left out several contacts that were on the iphone). Have no idea why. try looking up CopyTransContactsv1.006.

    Since you are syncing your iPhone to Google Contacts, have you tried doing the same with the Lumia 920? I had my Lumia 920 synced to Gmail Contacts and Calendar until a few days ago and it was always in sync with my Android devices.
    Better hurry and do it before Google removes the ability to add Gmail accounts to Windows Phone using EAS. And don't hard reset after that.

    No, you must do it over a hotmail/outlook account for best results. There is a post somewhere in how to migrate you gmail to outlook.

    I have my iPhone 5 Google acct setup as exchange (although who knows how long they'll let us existing users keep it); I used the MS google setting on my 900... this seems to work just fine for me.

    To keep iPhone and Windows Phone syncing, you can use Gmail.
    tap "Settings" in the App list and then "Email + accounts". If you're running Windows Phone 8, tap "Add an account" > "Google". Enter your email address and password and then tap "Sign in" > "Accept". After that, you can transfer contacts from Lumia to iPhone 4s via syncing. On your iPhone, you can do the settings as followed.
    Tap "Settings" while on the home screen
    Scroll to and tap "Mail, Contacts , Calendars"
    Under "Accounts" tap "Add account"
    Select "Other"
    Under "Contacts", tap "Add CardDAV Account" to sync your Google contacts
    Enter "google.com" in the "Server" field
    Type in your Google account's username and password in the proper fields
    Enter the account name in the "Description" field
    Tap "Next"
    To synchronize Google Calendar, tap "Add account"
    Tap "Other"
    Under "Calendars", tap "Add CalDAV Account"
    Enter "google.com" in the "Server" field
    Type in your Gmail address' username, password and description in the appropriate fields
    Tap "Next"
    Select to sync "Calendars" and / or "Reminders"
    Tap "Save"

    Thanks I guess, but you replied to a thread that is three years old.

    Also MS accounts or others can be used as well.
