    So I was wondering how to sync my contacts from my google account to my phone. My wife had a Samsung and I synced the contacts with her google account but the contacts won't sync back to her new Icon. Is this not possible?

    You need to import her contacts from Google into her Microsoft account. Once that is done, and her Microsoft account is set up on her Icon, they will automatically sync.

    Import contacts into an Outlook.com account - Outlook

    This is the best guide i've seen by far: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...-live-com.html

    Microsoft wants you to just "link" your account if you go to "people" in outlook but your phone will not sync your google numbers, etc if you do this. you have to completely export to .csv in google contacts and then import into People.

    All I did was add my gmail account in settings and the contacts sync'd automatically.

    That is exactly what I did on my Lumia 810 and it works just fine.
