How to recover contacts when UserID is forgotten?

You cannot recover your contacts without knowing the user ID. However you can recover your user ID.

To recover your User ID

  1. If you have a phone number associated with your email account you don't need a user ID. You can log into your account on Outlook mail.com using your phone number. After loging in note your username from there.

  2. If you don't have an associated phone number but have an recovery email try contacting Microsoft from that email. They will surely help.
  3. If you don't have an recovery email or phone, then get the IMEI of the Windows mobile you signed in with your Microsoft account before (in your case the IMEI of your Lumia 520). Contact the customer care with the IMEI. Hopefull they may find and tell your email ID that was associated with your phone.
