  3. Contact Syncing - STOP

    The app synced with my existing contacts meaning it doubled contacts for people. This meant that I had to go through and delete those. In addition, it included contacts I did not want in my phone's contact list. They may have been people I did not know and simply had been included in a group message or Spam I received.

    What you think is being helpful is simply interfering with people's personal contacts. STOP!

  9. add ability to select contact folders to sync. We do not need all our contacts on our phones

    add ability to select contact folders to sync. We do not need all our contacts on our phones. Most small business have multiple contact folders some for prospects and personal.
    Thanks for listening

  17. Newly added OWA contacts do not appear in my OWA contacts app

    When I click on an email address in an OWA email, select New Contact (or maybe it's Add Contact), and complete/add the contAct, I don't know where it goes, but it doesn't show up in my OWA contacts.

  19. Group Contact: Creation and Editing

    I would like to reiterate other comments regarding the creation of group contacts on the app and mobile site. Also, even in the full site the addition of contacts to the group is limited to one contact. It would be nice to be able to add several contacts at a time (i.e. from an external mailing list) separated by commas/semi-colons.

  20. Just read my regular contacts from iPhone (including iCloud) and don't worry about syncing.

    Why reinvent the wheel? All we want to do is send an email to a person already in our contacts list. The app acts like it has no clue that there are any contacts on my phone.
