    I want to export contacts from Lumia 900. I have forgotten the password for my initial windows live account. I wanted to restore it via sms or email but Microsoft never send me any sms/email. I created a second live account and added it to the Lumia 900. I selected “Synchronise”. Then I followed your steps “First sync the Windows Phone contacts to a Microsoft account” until the 8th when none of my contacts were in the address book of my Microsoft account 2. Can you please help me export?

      Hello Sneha, we don’t use Microsoft account synchronization in our tutorial, you just need to download the phoneswappr app on your Lumia, we’re you able to do that?
