Hi, I have just obtained a new Vodafone Smart Ultra 7 phone. I have set up my hotmail email and its working fine. All my contact information is in that hotmail account and although I have selected that email account none of the contacts transfer to the contacts folder on the phone. Help please

Unfortunately this article does not solve my problem.

As I have outlined I can access my email and contacts via the outlook app but I cannot transfer the contacts to the phone's address book - the "contacts" icon/program which sits on the phones homescreen.contacts.JPG

Seems you're not alone but found these steps

 

  1. Log into Windows Live Hotmail from your PC.
  2. Export your contacts:- Go to Manage > Export.Save the file on your PC
  3. Log into Gmail.
  4. Import your contacts.Go to More actions > Import contacts.
  5. Import the Contact list from Gmail account to your Android phone

That is all well and good if you have a gmail account. I do not have a gmail account nor do I want a new gmail account

Check out the Android Query forum, there were a few options there.

Don't use the Outlook app. Set it up as an exchange account in the phones native email client.
