    Where on your PC are your contacts stored? Are they on Outlook? Easiest thing to do would be to export all of your contacts as a .CSV file, then import that file into your Google Contacts on the web. Once they have been imported, they should sync over to your phone.

    You can learn how to export your Windows Live Mail contacts into a .CSV file here: How do I import and export email, contacts, and calendars with Windows Live Mail? - Microsoft Windows Help

    Then go to Redirecting..., click on the "More" button, then click on "Import." Select the .CSV file that you just created. Hopefully that will work--Google doesn't specifically say that .CSV files from Windows Live Mail are supported, but I imagine they will be very similar to Outlook .CSV files.

    sorry Im not following here - when I go to "redirecting" is this on the PC or the mobile? Do I have to connect the mobile to the computer with a cable for all this?

    Redirecting actually points you to Redirecting..., so you want to do all of this from your computer while you are saving your contacts in Outlook as .csv files. You can then upload that saved .csv file with the contacts and it will be saved to Google. When you log into any Android device with your Google account you'll have the option to sync contacts.

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    this doesnt work! The first part! If I try to export as .csv file when I open the new folder it opens an excel document that has all the names but no email addresses? Looks like Ill just have to enter them all one at a time! Grrrrr1

    The "Redirecting..." is actually a link to Google Contacts (it's highlighted in blue, so if you hover over it, you'll see the URL for Google Contacts appear, and if you click it, you'll be taken there). The software for this forum automatically tried to convert the URL to the actual name of the page, but clearly it's not the right title.

    I'm not familiar with Windows Live Mail, so not sure why it wouldn't export correctly. What happens if you just try to import that .CSV file into Google Contacts?

    i cant see how to do that, there is no option to "redirecting" either right or left click! Ive tried downloading a program ( wondershare mobile go) to my pc that claimed to be able to do this with one click but sadly it doesnt work either!

    How are you accessing Android Central? Where it says "Redirecting," it should be a link. Anyway, the link is to Google Contacts. All you have to do is search on the web for Google Contacts, and you'll be able to click that link, since posting the link here seems to be problematic.

    I don't think there is a way to export your contacts directly from your iPad unless you use a 3rd party app, which probably costs money. I would still try importing the .CSV file that you exported from Windows Live Mail first, even though you didn't see any email addresses when you looked at it in Excel. If that doesn't work, then we'll see if there's something else to try.
