    Good morning all,

    I am attempting to edit quite a few of my contacts on a Lumia 900 running Windows 8.1.

    I go to the contact I want to edit and I select edit.

    It offers me several options of where and how to edit the contact:
    edit Hotmail
    edit Hotmail
    edit Live
    edit Live
    edit Google

    Here are my questions:

    Why are there 2 options to edit Hotmail and Live but only one option to edit Google? (Iím guessing I might have duplicated the Hotmail and Live contact list when I changed phones. In that case, how do I unduplicate them?)

    What is the difference between Hotmail and Live anyway? As far as I can tell I have only one list of contacts, linked to my Microsft email account.

    Is there a way to edit each contact so that it syncs with both the Microsoft and Google account, or do I have to do each one separately?

    Many thanks.

    I'm guessing there are two options because one was used to set up with the phone. Your best bet would be to remove the additional accounts (in this case, the live and hotmail, and just keep the one you used to set up the phone) from your phone and then try again.

    I don't think there's a difference between Hotmail and Live, just what your email address ends in.

    I don't have an answer for your third question, but hopefully someone knows.
