    Hi guys,

    Just picked up my new Lumia 920. I transferred all my contacts to my Microsoft account from my iPhone (my MS account was already linked to Twitter and Facebook). Spent 1-2 hours making sure there were no duplicate contacts and cleaning it all up. Now I come to login with my MS account on the phone and it sync's that account, auto logs in to twitter and syncs this but does NOT setup Facebook for me. When I go to login to Facebook on the phone it says do I want to connect this account to my Microsoft account - obviously I don't want anything to overlap or to have to mess about cleaning it all up again.

    Any ideas? Or is this normal and I should hit ok to connect it to my Microsoft account?

    Hi,
    this is normal, on the phone your Facebook is not "auto-grabbed" from your Microsoft account even though you already connected your accounts.

    It will be okay its not going to add any contacts to your Microsoft account. You will see both contacts on your phone and PC contacts all you have to do is link them. If the names are the same it will auto link the contacts and only show one. If you don't like the way it looks just un sync Facebook or twitter and those contacts will be removed from your contacts.
