    I'm trying to get my Microsoft contacts on my new Pixel (i fully intend to switch back to Windows once they figure out what they're doing). However, I can't seem to figure it out. Anyone have any instructions? Everything I've found online so far seems to be for older versions of Android.

    1. Transfer my data app (can receive maybe send too), OR
    2. Sign-in w/ your live/hotmail/outlook account on Android phone. OR
    3. Export your contacts with Outlook desktop app, it will save .CSV file on your PC, transfer that file to Android phone and 'try' to open it. That will save contacts on phone

    Ps. Never tried 1&2 on Android, 3 did between 2 androids with .CSV file

    What I would do is sign into your Microsoft/Outlook.com account as an Exchange account on your Android phone.

    Settings > Accounts > Add Account > Exchange - you can find the appropriate settings if needed online.

    I personally use BlackBerry Hub to handle all my MS information but either way you should be able to get it syncing using the way I outlined.

    You can also export your contacts out of Outlook.com website.

    I'm not sure if I'm missing something but can't you use the Outlook App and enable Contact sync for whatever account holds your contacts? Or does the native mail app on Pixi work different?

    You can use the Outlook app but I found Contact sync to not work so well, but that's just my experience.

    It's these little things that really ticks me off about MS apps.

    What you can do is log into your MSA at www.outlook.com. Go to the PEOPLE web app. Export your contacts as Comma Separated by Values (.CSV). Save it to your computer. Then import them into your GMAIL account, via the website webmail.

    Originally, what I did when I added contacts, I added them to my Google account instead of MSA. So, they show up in my PEOPLE app and also gets sync'd to my GOOGLE account.

    hi, you can export your contacts to sim and then just use sim apps or Google Contacts to transfer it to Android.
