  1. Unable to add a number to a contact in Microsoft People app


    I tried to add a number to a specific contact, but the screen froze and the app auto-exited. This has happened several times since. Needless to say, I cannot solve the problem.

    Any help would be appreciated...

    The contacts list/people app on Microsoft Lumia 550

    They're there because you configured the phone to do it. facebook doesn't magically configure itself.

    Deleting facebook contacts is done in facebook.

    To hide contacts from the people app, you can follow the suggestions listed in the above posts.

  3. Linked Outlook Contacts Not Syncing with Windows 10 People App

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    As you are unable to sync contacts in the People App, I suggest you to run the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter by following the steps provided below:

    • Type “Troubleshooting” in the search box and press Enter.
    • Click on ‘View All’ on the top left pane.
    • Click on “Windows Store Apps” from the list and follow the on-screen prompts for troubleshooting.

    If the issue still persists, then remove and add the Yahoo account in the People App.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Unlink combined contacts - People app

    Hi Ninaco,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.

    The People app is your address book. Combine contacts is a feature to link duplicates to a single contact to avoid confusion. To overcome the issue you’re facing, I suggest you to try the steps listed below:

    Method 1

    Unlink Contacts:

    • Open People app, click on the contact that is linked, and select
      See More on the right pane.
    • Click on Separate for the contact you want to unlink.

    Method 2

    Reset People app:

    If you’ve multiple contacts that are linked, resetting People app would unlink contacts and put everything in place.

    • Exit People app, if open.
    • Open Settings and click on Apps.
    • Locate People app on the right pane and choose
      Advanced Options.
    • Click on Reset.

    Once reset is complete, open People app to see if the contacts are still linked.

    For more information regarding People app, refer People app help

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards,
