Iam facing a strange problem with my HD7 since yesterday. I have made some addition and deletion in my windows live contacts. Now my HD7 is no longer reflecting/updating these changes. ( Previously HD7 was updating the contacts immidiatly).

Although I have kept my mobile phone's wifit on for several hours. Beside this I have access the hotmail account through HD7's internet explorer and have done a lot of surfing on my HD7 but still it has not updated the contacts. Am I missing some thing ?

is it getting your emails fine still? i know it's a bit risky and will mean your changes will disappear but worst case scenario would be to remove your live account from windows phone and readd it again.

Same problem here
It happened to me just after I edited and merged some contacts on my Windows Live account.

Now I'm not able to get all my contacts there to my device and I lost all avatars but the ones of facebook.

I think I tried anything but stills not working

wp7 doesn't let you to remove ur main windows live account

I found a strange & stupid kind of solution. I tired it 3 times and it worked.
Turn on the wifi. surf the market place and recomendedly install any free software. The problem will be fixed. All contacts will be updated.

I've got similar issue. Contacts will be synced, but none of the contact pictures... Tried syncing over WiFi and 3G, no affect. Even tried to remove and add pictures to contacts on computer see what happens then... Nothing, contact pics wont be synced...

is there a manual way to force Facebook to sync with your contacts?

I have had a number of new Facebook friends added so I can link them with my phone contacts and get the pictures etc. It done this the first time but hasnt since.

May try logging out of the Facebook contacts bit and then reenter my credentials to try again
