    Hello guys, I have a problem since I formatted my Lumia 820. I used my usual outlook, xbox, skype etc as MS account but the phone it's not able to display all my contacts but it shows only few of them, about 10 on 100...
    Is it a bug or somethin'?
    I'm getting crazy, if i go to Outlook.com website it shows all my contacts list including ones that i added directly from the phone, so the sync worked like a charm before, what can I do?

    Thanks for the help!

    nope, If i add a second Hotmail account it shows all my contacts list otherwise with the primary MS account (which it's the same) it only shows my messenger contacts...


    Solved: Exported contact list from Outlook.com, deleted all my contacts and imported again on the website. Deleted all messenger contacts and merged into outlook ones. Maybe it's the walking dead messenger that create this issue.

    Man - this is ugly. I have Facebook linked through Google, Google linked through my Microsoft Account (MSN) and I had to add my Outlook.com a second time to sync Contacts. In my calendar settings, you see
    Windows Calendar (outlook.com)
    Birthday Calendar (outlook.com)
    Facebook (outlook.com)
    US Holidays (outlook.com)
    Google / Gmail
    Calendar (Facebook)
    Windows Calendar (Outlook)
    Birthday calendar (Outlook)
    Facebook (Outlook)
    Google (Outlook)
    US Holidays (Outlook)

    Uh... I really only want to see my Google and Facebook calendars. Once. The rest are unchecked!!

    Ah figured it out - though "Contacts" are not a visible checkbox (just like calendar, though I wish that one was so I could disable it) it does sync them. I just wasn't patient enough. (I copied my contacts from Google to Outlook.com so that I could stop fighting to get my contacts to sync on various Windows 8 / Windows Phone 8 devices. So removed 4 of those extra options :-)

    Hello Pak84, I am facing the same problem as you!
    I have reset my phone 3 times (as intructed by Nokia!) without success, up to now... no contact listed on my new Lumia 920.

    I try to follow your tip of deleting all contacts on outlook.com, but I am facing one problem! I do have Skype contact and I cant delete them, except if I delete them on slype account. But doing this would be a shame!
    How did you mange to delete your Messenger/Skype contacts from outlook.com?
