    Sync Microsoft account.

    I am using windows 8.1 on a laptop and my phone and have a Microsoft account for contacts and calendar. I have no problem in syncing between the two devices. I am now trying to set up my tablet so that I can also use the same contacts and calendar. If I view my accounts on the tablet under settings I can see that I have several accounts that show that sync is on, however my Microsoft account is in the list but it shows that sync is off, whatever I try I cannot get the sync on function.

    I use a separate account for my emails and they sync ok.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum

    If you tap that account is there one sync item that looks out of place? You may want to remove the account, restart and add it back. Any errors?

    Thanks for reply.

    The Microsoft Windows live account is shown at the top of the list as is the sync icon (circle with two arrows in it), however the icon is grey whereas the others are green. If I try to select the account the screen changes and the Microsoft account is shown under the tab "Accounts and sync", under the account name is a title "Data and Synchronisation" but nothing else.

    I think I remember that there is an "issue" on older versions of Android (ICS has been superseded 4 times now) with regards to the synching of Microsoft based calendars & contacts...

    If I am right, I don't think there was a fix - except for manually importing everything into Googles contacts/calendar...
