But I do this on mine and it works perfectly
Are you setting up as a mail account in the mail app or as an exchange account under the accounts section?
You have to use the latter to make it work
My calendar from my Hotmail account even syncs

I did some research before posting my reply, and it does seem like this should work. When you setup the account, there is a check box to sync contacts. Ensure this is checked, and it should work. I just tested it myself on my Tab 10.1 using my Hotmail account, and it worked without issue, though it's taking a little while to download all the contacts.

Went into Settings.........Accounts & Sync..........+Add Account.....
Here I get 4 choices of account.....1. Corporate, 2. Email, 3. Google Accounts, or 4. Samsung account
I chose Email, filled in the email address & password, hit Next. Checked all the little boxes for Sync.
I received a message stating my account was set up and email was on its way..
Sure enough, all the email popped right in..........BUT there is no mention anywhere of synching CONTACTS......
Also, there's no mention anywhere of a choice for an Exchange Account.
Where am I going wrong?

My email is @yahoo.com and the contacts are in Windows Live Mail.
Everything else working perfectly, love the unit.....just can't seem to get the Contacts. Maybe I'm obsessing too much and should just type them in and move on.
Thanks so much for your input and help on this. I'm just stumped.

Open windows live mail on your pc, go to Contacts, Export, CSV
Open Gmail on your pc, go to contacts, More, Import, CSV
Sync your Tab & Gmail contacts

Beyond this little obstacle, the tab seems to work really well. Thank you for your suggestion.
