    i have several threads about this , none of which are answering my issues. so i have a new outlook.com email, not a corporate exchange account, its just a personal account. and it is only syncing the majority of my contacts. through trial and error i have got it to sync a few more, but some of which are old numbers??? all i want is all the contacts in my MS outlook email, to sync to my iphone... what am i doing wrong?

    Although, I have an outlook email account configured on my iPhone, I only sync my mail and not the contacts and calendars. I have one contacts list that I use for ALL of my email accounts. Having said that, have you tried deleting the outlook email account, rebooting your phone and then reconfiguring your outlook email account? What I can do a little later is import my contact list into my outlook account online and then enable syncing those contacts with my phone to see if I can replicate the issue you are having and get back to you.

    A lot of people prob don't have a clue that's why they don't answer

    And a lot of us don't use outlook

    Have your Tried syncing outlook via iTunes ?

    Maybe delete the account on phone and re add it ? Set it up as a exchange account

    I imported my contact list to my outlook account online using my MacBook. Afterwards, and on my iPhone, I went to Settings/Mail, Contact, Calendars/Outlook Mail and then I turned on Contacts. Then I initiated the contacts app, selected "groups" and then unchecked all of my groups except Outlook Mail. I then selected "done" in the upper right corner. All of the contacts I imported to my Outlook account were present and accounted for.

    appreciate the response... i followed exactly what you said with no avail... so i removed all the contacts and my outlook acct from my phone, , and then rebooted my phone. then re-added my outlook account, and turned the contacts back on... still missing multiple contacts from outlook... im at a loss... guess i will try gmailand see if it picks up all my contacts that way.

    How many contacts do you have and how many are not showing up via the contacts app?

    Do you have duplicate contacts that it may have no sync'd automatically?

    I'm not aware of a contact limit within the iOS contact app. Like D said, how many do you have though? If it's a TON then it may be a limit-type-issue.
