    Hello !
    I'm a new Android user, just made the witch from Windows Phone !
    I have all my contacts on my Microsoft account.
    On my Windows Phone, my contact were a merge of my outlook contacts (that I could directly sync with the phoneà and my Facebook contacts, that I could sync from the official Facebook app.
    The problem is, i tried to do the same (with the Outlook app from MS and the Facebook app) but none of my contacts appears in the "contacts" app !

    How can I sync my existing contacts from Outlook/Microsoft and Facebook to my Android phone ?

    Please help

    Welcome to Android Central! For the Microsoft contacts, add whichever Microsoft email account you have to the stock Email app. That should allow the associated contacts to sync.

    Syncing Facebook contacts depends on the phone you have, because this function isn't actually native to Android--i.e., you can't do it if you have a Nexus device. But other manufacturers do incorporate this, like Samsung and HTC. Which phone do you have?

    I used to connect my outlook.com -email adresse to the Gmail app, it worked, but the contacts did not showed up. The stock email app can't connect to my outlook.com account...
    How is it possible that it's so hard to get my contacts ???

    Connecting to the Gmail app won't import the contacts. Not sure why you're having problems adding the account to the stock Email app. Are you getting an error? Have you tried entering the account information manually? Use the IMAP settings in this article: https://www.outlook-apps.com/outlook-com-pop-settings/
