    Hi,
    today i had a problem with my L640lte (W8.1, daily driver) and my L925 (W10, just lying around).
    Some phone numbers of my outlook contacts disappeared, i just added them again. This was no Problem, but some hours later i had the same problem again. This time i lost more numbers and i dont know all of them.

    Does anyone know this problem?

    Haven't had this problem. Are you sure you don't just have duplicate contacts? (ones with phone numbers, and the same contact again but with only email addresses for example?)

    No at some contacts there are duplicates, but they are all connected, so thats not the problem.

    im now thinkin that the number is just not displayed.. when i open whatsapp i see the number of this contacts but when i recieve a message from one of them the banner shows me the name which is in my contacts, by now it happend a third time :/

    Well, it happened to me, too. I just noticed it today and hope they find a quick solution. Especially, as there is no way to check, which numbers are gone.

    Same here. My wife and me noticed this while using WhatsApp. Suddenly, the names within WhatApp were gone, just phonenumbers are shown. When we checked our contacts, there were some phonenumbers missing.
    By the way, I use a Win10Mobile Preview so I think this must be a Outlook.com problem.

    Happened to me also. Contact phone numbers disappearing. I think it has something to do with skype as all the contacts with the problem were also skype contacts.

    Yah, a number of people reported that after installing the new skype app. I am waiting for the new build tomorrow before installing it.

    I guess that is the risk of being an insider!

    I don't think it has something to do with skype messaging, i dont use the app and havent even downloaded it, though i also think that its because of insider. (would be crazy if it happened to usual users)^^

    MS support didn't contact me yet, i'll write them again on monday. :/

    Someone called me on skype and the number which was supposed to be missing showed up with the proper name and all. Not the new skype messaging but the older skype official skype client. I have a skype number that i use to receive calls. If you open the skype app some contacts have no phone number information but if you dial from skype the call goes through. Means the number is in there somewhere and not actually deleted.

    I am not an insider, still on wp 8.1, and it happened to me, too. Also, not all my skype contacts' phone numbers went missing, however, all that are AWOL are on my skype contacts list.

    The same is for me. Fortunatelly, I have another computer with Outlook installed. So I opened it, went offline and exported all contacts into a file. Then I compared it to the existing list and found about 100 missing phones for outlook.com (hotmail) contacts.

    BTW, I think it could be Facebook connector related issue.

    I hope they will be able to restore my contacts. Otherwise, I have to manually re-add those phones.

    Yeah, it could really be Facebook, because for me it happened soon after I installed it. But not only to my facebook friends and not to all my Facebook friends.

    I do not have Facebook, not using insider, nor does my mom, we both have the same issue. I contacted the Microsoft support, after the issue was sent to L2 there are no updates(1,5 weeks approx.). That pretty unbelievable.

    Add me to the club! Half of my contacts have disappeared on my Lumia 640... if this isn't fixed soon I may have to finally give up on WP.
