    Hi

    Am I right to assume we have a copy of contacts in our Skydrive?

    To cut a story short, I have many duplicated contacts or wrong info contacts in my phone and I suspect the problem may be with the contacts stored in Skydrive. If the answer is yes, can I:

    1) Delete all the contact in Skydrive.
    2) Upload all new re-edited contacts in my phone up to Skydrive?

    Thanks.

    It automatically connects your contacts to your live account.

    I went to my live account and I couldn't find the contacts info there.

    It doesn't save a file there. If I were you, I would just link all the same contacts together.

    You will find your contacts in "People". On a PC, go to skydrive.com and login. Click the little downwards arrow in the top left corner next to the SkyDrive logo, then click People. You will see all your contacts here which are linked to your phone. BEWARE though, I would make a backup of these first before you go editing them. Whatever you edit or delete on the website will automatically change on your phone, they are synced. Make a backup first by clicking Manage at the top, then Export (this is whilst in the People section on the website).

    Thank you, dznk.

    Is there a way to store, beside the other contact details, also the photo of the contact person on Skydrive?

    I don't think so. I think they are indeed stored in the cloud (skydrive) when you add a photo of the contact on your phone, but I don't think they are accessible to us through SkyDrive, not that I know of anyway.

    In that case do you know of any apps, free or payable, that could do that? Thanks

    I don't off hand, but I'll have a look later. If I come across any I'll let you know.

    Your phone numbers should definitely show up in People. Are you using a Microsoft Account on your phone that is different to your usual Hotmail account? It will be your Microsoft Account that holds your phone numbers for your phone. If you are just using your Hotmail account for email, then they wouldn't show up if you logged into People on skydrive.com or through outlook.com using your Hotmail account.

    Just have a quick check on your phone in Settings > 'email+accounts' and see what email address is showing for your Microsoft Account. This is the account that will hold your phone numbers online.
