My Nokia635 -win8.1 and my laptop win8 BOTH have synch turned off. So why, when I deleted contacts in hotmail, did they get deleted on my phone ??  This is TOTALLY against all "privacy agreements" !!!

Might this question be better answered on a Nokia or Windows / Hotmail site? You would likely get more and faster answers there.

But  my cell service is Koodo !!  So Koodo also has a responsibility here !!!

Since Koodo is not party to the privacy agreement for your operating system on either the phone or laptop, nor has it anything to do with the permissions you have set up on either device or Hotmail, they have no responsibility. Koodo is simply the pipe through which the data was sent. They have absolutely no ability to manage or change the synchronizing of your various applications. It is not their responsibility to guess your operating system and application permissions.
