I had Hotmail which changed to Outlook and all my contacts were lost. I have had other issues and I have contacted them, but they don’t care. They’ve done NOTHING.
Terry, I do have one thing you might be able to try. I can’t promise it will work, but it’s worth a try. Sign into your Outlook.com account.
Click the drop-down arrow next to Outlook in the upper-left corner.
You’ll see the options to Choose Outlook.com, People, Calendar or SkyDrive. Select People.
Click the drop-down arrow next to Manage at the top of the page.
Choose Restore deleted contacts
If there are deleted contacts that Outlook can restore, you’ll be able to choose to restore all of them or select them individually.
Select the contact or contacts you wish to restore.
Then choose Restore.
The selected contact should reappear in your contact list.
