When you sign in to Microsoft Lync 2010 on the iPhone, you see your Contacts list. Your Contacts list is a list of co-workers, family, and friends with whom you communicate most often.

What do you want to do?

View Lync Contacts list

The Lync contacts on your mobile device Contacts list are the same contacts in your Microsoft Lync 2010 Contacts list on your computer.

To view your Lync Contacts list, do the following:

  • Tap Contacts, and then tap the Lync tab.

View contacts by group

To view your contacts by group, do the following:

  1. Tap Contacts, and then tap the Lync tab.

  2. When you see the list of groups, tap any one of the group’s name to expand the group, and find the contact you’re looking for.

View Pinned Contacts

When you pin a contact using Lync 2010 on your computer, you can also see those Pinned Contacts on Lync for the iPhone.

  1. To view Pinned Contacts, tap Contacts, and then tap the Lync tab.

  2. The first group listed is your Pinned Contacts. Tap the group’s name to expand the group and view the contacts in the group.

View federated contacts

Lync can display presence information for contacts that use email services such as the Windows Live network of Internet services (including MSN and Hotmail), AOL®, and Yahoo!®, and who are joined to Lync. Federated users (users who are outside your company) can do activities such as share presence information, make and Lync calls.

  1. To view a federated contact, tap Contacts, from the Lync tab, start typing a person’s email address in the search box. The results are shown below the box.

  2. When you find the contact you’re looking for, tap the contact’s email address to view their contact information.

Note:  Some users have an email account with a service that is not federated with Lync. Although you can add these users to your Contacts list in the same way that you add federated users, you won’t see presence information.
