I have a particular contact connected to my Live.com account (main one for the phone) for which I've added an email address in my phone. However, I've found that the email address isn't being synced to the contact record on Live.com.
Anyone else found the same behaviour?

I have found that there tends to be a slight delay before it will show up on my Outlook.com account contact. Not sure what the length of delay is, I just know that I do something on my phone, and it isn't there right away... But after a while when I check again, it's there.

Please see next post for a further update.
I added a new contact to Hotmail
Went to Settings > Email+Accounts > Hotmail changed "Download new content" to every "15 minutes".
Soft rebooted phone
*went to go help someone with some Thanksgiving items that needed my attention.
Came back to the phone and the NEW contact was on my phone; however the existing contact with the missing phone number STILL does not have a phone number and I can see it right there in Hotmail.
...I'm confused :(
In Hotmail I have it setup so that I am ONLY seeing Hotmail contacts so that there can be no mistake that the information is from another source and is not indeed in Hotmail.

SOLVED! - I think I finally found the issue...when importing contacts some of the contact numbers were labeled "iPhone". Those contact's numbers were imported as "Other" and do not display on that person's Profile.
Which brings me to the next question...why would there be a field available in Hotmail that when data is present is not visible on the phone?

Huh. Now isn't that weird. I just changed the 'download new content' polling interview, waited for the sync, and took a look at the contact. The previously missing email address field is now there. That didn't happen when I long-pressed and chose 'sync'.

Edit: Nevermind. I see what you mean now about the phone number--that is strange. I can only think that it was a field that got overlooked during development.
