    1. You need to sync the Windows phone contacts to a Microsoft account like Outlook.com or Hotmail.com. If you already did that, skip to Step 5. To sync the contacts with a Microsoft account, go to the People app on your Windows phone and tap "..." at the bottom, then tap "settings"

    3. Now select "Microsoft account" and enter your Outlook.com or Hotmail.com credentials. If you don't have a Microsoft account already, you can create one from here.

    Alternative: Sync Outlook.com contacts with iPhone

    If you are not up to using third-party tools, you can keep the contacts in your Outlook.com account and instead sync the account with your iPhone in order for the contacts to come through to your iPhone.

    1. On your iPhone, connect the Outlook/Hotmail account. To do so, go to the iPhone Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars

    [​IMG]

    2. Next tap "Add account"

    [​IMG]

    3. Tap "Outlook.com"

    [​IMG]

    4. Enter your Outlook.com credentials and tap "Next"

    5. Make sure that the "Contacts" switch is turned to the ON position.

    That's it, now you have your Windows phone contacts on your iPhone.
