    Im getting frustarted now! Ive tried just about every suggestion to save my contacts to ipad from wlm but nothing works!
    I even downloaded this "dropbox" thing but there is no option in that to copy the files to either!
    Is the easiest ( but longest) just to manually type in each email addy to ipad contacts program?
    hard to believe it is SO difficult to copy these just because I use BT email - they are one of the biggest internet companies!

    Ive just had an idea! what im going to do is get everyone on my contact list to email me then open the emails in ipad & (hopefully) there will be an option to "save contact details"?
    Should that work?

    That should work, it doesn't sound ideal does it but if that is what it takes.....

    When you open the emails you need to touch their name in the from box and you will get the option to create new contact or add to existing contact.

    You can sync to windows live mail via an exchange account, this will give you your contacts.

    The iPhone natively supports Microsoft Exchange sync with Windows Live accounts so that you can move your contacts from your Windows Live account to your iPhone address book directly through your 3G or Wi-Fi Internet connection.




    [h=4]Step 1[/h]Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPhone home screen.

    [h=4]Step 2[/h]Select "Mail, Contacts, Calendars."

    [h=4]Step 3[/h]Tap "Add Account."

    [h=4]Step 4[/h]Select "Microsoft Exchange."

    [h=4]Step 5[/h]Enter your Windows Live email address, username and password, and then tap "Next."

    [h=4]Step 6[/h]Enter "m.hotmail.com" in the "Server" field and then tap "Next."

    [h=4]Step 7[/h]Swipe the "Contacts" slider to "On" and then tap "Save." Your Windows Live contacts will be synced to your iPhone. You can also choose to sync your Windows Live email and calendars to your iPhone by swiping the appropriate sliders to "On."

    I know you are talking about your iPad the method works on all idevices.

    Frankly if you are ignoring methods because they mention iPhone instead of iPad it's no wonder you haven't manage to sort your contacts.

    btinternet.com email is provided by Yahoo not Windows Live Mail, thats why none of the current methods you've tried work. More information helps people give yo relevant answers.

    I'm not familiar with setting Yahoo contacts up but now we've established that, I'm sure somebody will know.

    Ok we are starting to understand your setup. Your talking about Windows live mail the desktop program not windows live mail the email provider.

    Your email provider is btinternet.com who uses Yahoo mail. The windows live mail program is setup to access your BTinternet.com acccount.

    We need to establish where your contacts are stored. If they are only in the window live mail program locally or are stored in your btinternet.com account online . Can you log onto your btinternet.com email account (not via your wlm program) and then look at the contacts section to confirm whether they are stored online or not.
