    If you've used a Microsoft Account for your HTC 8X, then using the same Microsoft Account for your Lumia 630 should automatically synchronize your contacts for both devices (contacts will be imported/copied to your L630). Just make sure that both phones have internet access.

    If you use the same ms account on your new phone the contacts are synced automatically to your new phone.
    Or if you use a new ms account just add the "old" as a normal account or use the app " Transfer my data"

    Bye the way it would have helped if you already told what you tried.

    I can enter a contact on my Lumia 630
    it will appear on my contacts in outlook
    it will be imported to the HTC 8X
    BUT
    the lumia still will not import contacts from my outlook
    is there possibly something I have clicked disabled on the
    630 that does not allow me to import contacts from outlook
    very strange

    Strange.
    I think there are still 2 possibilities.
    In settings > email + accounts > tap the account and check what you have under "Download new content" . If it is "daily" that may explain why you do not see the contact after you added them in outlook because it only gets new content daily.
    If so change it to more often or just in "emails + accounts" tap and hold the account and then sync.

    Or the contacts you add have no phone numbers and in the people hub at the top under "PEOPLE" under "contacts" you see "showing" and there should be "all". If not tap it and change to all.
    If it shows "contacts with phone numbers" it does not show contacts with for example only a email.


    In your HTC 8x can you copy contacts to SIM and then import them via your SIM on your 630
