    When I manually add a new contact to my phone, it does not sync up to my Live account online. Is this a bug, or a missing feature?

    I've noticed this months ago and actually posted by diagnosis and how to force refresh the sync in a way. Unfortunately, I do not remember the exact method but try adding a contact on your phone, then going into your contacts via your Live account on your computer. Add a contact on your computer, and once you do that (if I recall correctly) it will sync everything.

    I'll try and find my old post later today and will post it here again, if I find it.

    I got it to work by turning off data and forcing phone to connect through wifi. Went into settings, manually synced Live account, and saw the immediate change server side. Now every time I edit or add a contact, I noticed that in settings, Live and Twitter automatically syncs without my doing (be it on wifi or 3G).
