    Is it just me or Microsoft did not think this trough??
    Okay... Lets see,

    I have a Microsoft account under my @outlook email. Now all my contacts are stored in it. Now the weird part is I have my surface pro you see. Synced with the same @outlook email that phone uses as its Microsoft account (well that's what's it is made for right?).

    When I add in new contacts I to my people hub in my phone and went over I to my surface. Those contacts did not sync.

    I went over to my phone to check under sync setting, I find out that the Microsoft account only syncs the email only. The hell!!!???

    Now I have to add in another outlook email address just so I can sync my contacts to my surface!

    Pls does anyone has a way to fix this problem or at least a way around it?

    My contacts on my WP sync perfectly with those at my people hub at my PC/Laptop. Did it again today with my new Lumia that I got today. Could it be that you added a MS Account AND an Outlook.com account on your phone and you add all your contacts to that outlook.com account?

    Contacts and calendar are synced, you just do not have a check box. Remember, the phone syncs to outlook based on the frequency you have selected and the same goes for your Surface. So, if both are set for a 30 minuite sync it could be an hour before the Surface is updated.
    jojapath and WoWNyx like this.

    oh I'll try to force sync it or even wait a while this time. I thought it would be instant because everytime I go into peoples hub on my surface. It says syncing on the top.
