  1. Sync contacts

    I can't sync my outlook contacts to my phone. In the past, signing into outlook or onedrive usually works but it hasn't. I installed launcher but my contacts still won't sync.

          • People incorrectly links contacts that are not linked in my contacts (outlook.com).

            The people widget incorrectly links contacts together which are not otherwise linked. For example, and only since recently, my wife's picture shows up but with my name under it. Selecting this contact shows a combined contact with both her and my details. No other contacts list (Outlook, Contacts) shows these as linked.

              • contact shortcuts do not work correctly,

                contact shortcuts do not work correctly, only know this because you prompted me to make one, so I did and it was incorrect information, for instance, text # correct, other contact info incorrect.

                • favorite contact

                  After setting my favorite contacts on the people widget, the people widget will occasionally get reset to a blank page with the big plus sign and I'll have to re-add my favorites.

                  • From frequently contacted people in glance tab if you tap it calls the contact using Sim1. Extend the functionality for dual sim phones

                    From frequently contacted people in glance tab if you tap, it calls the contact using Sim1. Extend the functionality for dual sim phones.

                    • contact widget

                      Contact widget lists every phone twice: once in international notation and once in local notation.
                      e.g. for a contact with those numbers:
                      03-1234567
                      050-2345678

                      Contact widget will show 4 numbers:
                      031234567
                      +97231234567
                      0502345678
                      +97250234567

                      note that it also stripped the dash from the original numbers.

                      • People widget keeps cleaning itself automatically. It is useless this way.

                        I manually add people to the widget, but from time to time it cleans itself.

                          • outlook contacts won't sync with my LG K10

                            outlook contacts (office account) won't sync with my LG K10. the sync works fine with my Samsung A3 and Huawei Mate9.
                            mails and calender sync works fine as well.
                            if i want to sign in to "people" it says that my office365 account doesn't exist.

                                        • Contacto favorito

                                          En la fuente contactos no puedo agregar mis contactos favoritos. Selecciono la opción, aparece un icono para agregarlos pero nada sucede.
