I have an iPhone 8 and an outlook.com/hotmail account. The Hotmail account has a large number of contacts (1000+). I've set the iPhone up to use the outlook.com account. It works fine for my mail and calendar. The contacts aren't really syncing though. It's downloaded 62 of them and stopped. I have contacts set to "on" in the settings. The contacts sync fine on my desktop using the outlook thick client. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks
