Hi there, so I deleted my groups and after 12 hours I still have no Hotmail contacts on my Z10.
Is there a way for import a csv or nbu file directly onto my phone?

Wow. What happened to the forum? I now appear to have a mobile version on my Z10! Cool. Much easier to read. And it loaded instantly. Pretty funky!
Yes, the forum was upgraded a few hours ago

You can remove the contacts from Hotmail once the synchronization is done, just make sure you turn off sync contacts in the Account Settings.
Hi guys, I still have no hotmail contacts on my z10. So I thought I would update.
IS ANYONE ELSE HAVING HOTMAIL CONACTS SYNC ISSUES WITH Z10??
I checked my playbook and if I set sync contacts to OFF, all my hotmail contacts disappear from the playbook.
If I then set sync contacts to ON, all my hotmail contacts re-appear.
If I alter a contact in hotmail then it appears on my PB and vice versa.
This above may sound obvious but here's what has happened with the Z10...
When I first set up the Z10 all my hotmail contacts loaded fine but then I noticed that they weren't updating so I turned sync off and lost all my contacts (as above in the playbook example), I then turned sync back on and since then I have had no contacts whatsoever. It seems like since the very first download of contacts the z10 has not been able to communicate with the hotmail contacts server.
I have removed groups as suggested (only a few contacts were in groups - left over from msn messenger).
I have turned sync off for a day and then back on. I have turned off push and set the sync interval to 15min. I have turned push back on again after a day.
I have resynced hotmail.
Any other ideas anyone?
This is a bit of a pain more from not having my hotmail contacts than not being able to transfer my nokia contacts.
I thought maybe when I did BB bridge to playbook that might fix it by syncing the playbook and the z10 but I guess it doesn't work like that.
*EDIT* OK SO THINGS ARE A LITTLE BIT MORE COMPLICATED THAN WHAT I THOUGHT...
liking a bit of a play, I thought... what happens if I add a hotmail contact on my phone while my phone shows no contacts... This it turns out was a mistake. lol. the data i entered does NOT match any of my hotmail, linked in, facebook or sim contacts:
So. what happened? Joe Bloggs (Hotmail), Phone 01233123123 (Home), Other Anyco (Company) appeared immediately in my hotmail account on my pc. GREAT!
BUT.... hotmail list on my contacts is empty. So I go to all contacts and search for Joe Bloggs and voila!
Joe is there.... BUT... JOE has now taken on the details of my facebook friend DEREK!!
I go back to view only hotmail contacts and now JOE shows there too. Still with half of derek's details.
SO I look at the links and it has 4 links:
Joe Bloggs (local contacts)
Joe Bloggs (SIM)
Joe Bloggs (hotmail).
Derek no longer has his own entry in any contact listing.
SIM I'm thinking to myself? I didn't add anything to the sim. Sure enough looking at SIM contacts only. JOE is there.
Something really funky going on here!!
But you know what derek and joe both have individual contacts on my trusty PlayBook. Shame the Playbook 2.1 wasn't shrunk into a pre-Z10 phone ;( PLAYBOOK ROCKS!
SHOULD I START A NEW THREAD? THIS REALLY ISN'T A GET MY NOKIA CONTACTS TO MY PHONE ISSUE ANYMORE! LOL. more of a wtf is going on with my phone contacts issue.
