    You can try to log into Hotmail and export your contacts to a .csv file and see if you can then import the .csv file into your phone.

    I believe you just need to have it on the "sd card". I don't have the wife's Captivate in front of me, but there should be an option under settings to import the file.

    I'll try to grab her phone this evening then. I know there's an option somewhere because I had to import her contacts into her phone since she was migrating from an iPhone. It may be under the contacts app, but there is an import option somewhere.

    Sorry it took so long. I took a look at the wife's Captivate this morning. The setting to import contacts is located in the Contacts app. Then hit Settings -> More. You should then see the option to import or export contacts.

    thanks, i see that now. i found another way though on another forum. went to my gmail account on the pc, imported them there, then synced with hotmail on the phone. worked like a champ.

    thanks again

    I had her do that initially, I just imported all of her contacts from her Mac into Google, but she ran into a problem where unless the contacts were actually stored on the phone, she couldn't assign individual ringtones to them, so I then had to figure out how to import the contacts directly to the phone.
