    The Windows Phone app astonishingly doesn't even let you see stuff other than photos, videos, etc. The MyPhone website shows you your contacts, but only at some point in the past and there's no button/feature to tell it to access my phone (which is plugged in via USB cable) to refresh the contact list, though there are endless features to import from twitter, facebook, etc.

    I've broken the display on the phone and will need to replace it. And I'll want to move my contacts to the new phone. The old phone lights up and I can see what WIndowsPhone app allows me to see, but anything requiring use of the touchscreen is impossible.

    Anyone know of a way to do this.

    Thanks

    So this may or may not help. When you created an MS account your contacts should have started syncing unless you chose to use a separate list(I.e. Google). All of your contact should therefore be on outlook.com or wherever you were saving them to when you setup the phone.

    If a Windows 8 based PC, you should be able yo see your contacts in the People app as well.

    I have a Mac with WIndows7 running in a seperate partition (ie BootCamp).

    Thanks for the suggestion, but these contacts have been typed into the phone by me over the past year and a half; they aren't in Outlook or anywhere else. They were supposed to be on the PEOPLE tab on MYPhone, but it seems to be out of date and doesn't seem to allow one to re-synch it with the physical phone's current address book.
