    Mail App Contacts

    I just noticed my contacts from my Live account are not the same as the ones shown in my Windows 8 mail app (People). Looking closer at the properties in my phone, I noticed that some say Hotmail and other say Verizon Backup Assistant Plus.
    My question is how do I get all the ones backed up by Verizon but included in my Live account so show up on my desk top(Hotmail Type)? How can I convert the contact type from Verizon to Live?

    Hope this makes sense.

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, johnml.

    I assume you have a Windows phone. I have Vz also except with a Android phone, so I go the Google backup method of which one can import/export that way via CSV or vCard formats.

    You may want to check this Vz page out on the subject:

    In the mean time I will contact one of my forum friends that has a Windows phone to see if he can help.

    OK, hello and welcome!

    I do believe I know what you're talking about as I have a Windows Phone and have worked with a Verizon Windows Phone as well, so I've seen these weird issues between Windows and Windows Phone contact wise.

    If I assume I know what you're saying, you're asking how to get your Verizon contacts synced together with your Hotmail account so they ALL show up on Windows?
