When you set up email accounts on your phone, the only contacts that sync automatically are Exchange account contacts. You need to follow a different process to import contacts from Windows Live, Yahoo!, AOL, and Gmail.
Step 1: On your phone
Sign in to Windows Live:
Step 2: On your computer
Now that you’re signed into Windows Live on your phone, you are ready to import your contacts to Windows Live. Once you do that, the contacts will automatically sync to your phone.
You’ll need the following information if you have one of the branded accounts (Hotmail, Gmail,
Yahoo! Mail, AOL):
• Your username - The first part of your email address
• Your password - The password you use to sign in to your account.
For other POP/IMAP accounts you’ll also need:
• Incoming server name - This is typically “pop.domain.com”.
• Outgoing server name - This is typically “smtp.domain.com”.
If you are referring to the original KIN devices, the previous response is accurate, but if you are referring to the recently released devices than the previous post doesn't work.
I don't know why this information continues to be given as advice. This doesn't work for the new KIN ONEm or TWOm. This used to work with the original kins, but not the new ones. So, to answer the question correctly, no. Nobody has found a way to sync contacts yet, and for that matter the only known way to transfer contacts is in some Verizon stores.
mcdietz answered it, you can successfully transfer contacts in-stores, that is what i did. One random note with that though, after you get them transferred (more like the store rep), turn your phone off and back on, because before i did that, some contacts were missing from the list (you can still search them though), some bug thats fixed with a restart. Actual verizon stores should be able to get your contacts transferred, i am not so sure about resellers and mini-mall booths, etc.
