        Why doesn't Microsoft implement this?
        It looks like MS very much want to have all contacts information from all Windows Phone users on Microsoft servers.

        Why? This doesn't give me much trust in Microsofts trustworthiness and probably hidden 'Big-Brother' agenda.

        The lack of CalDav support for other independent cloud services is the only reason the can make me switch back to android or iPhone. Please!

        It really is about time to support CardDAV, CalDAV, WebDAV for independent/individual cloud solutions. What does MS gain by locking that? VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!

        This is the main reason I'm switching to BlackBerry or iPhone. Why can't we have normal CalDAV/CardDAV suport after 3 years?

        At least 4 people in my friend circle would switch to Windows Phone if it wasn't for the absence of carddav and caldav.

        Come on, MS: you open sourced .net! So pls extend your openness to email, calendar and contact sync! It's a no brainer!

        CALDAV !!! My company has 130K employees... if you GIVE windows phone for free they cannot use calendar at work... NO CALDAV :(

        A smartphone that fails to do the very basic tasks, like syncing contacts, calendars etc. via. standard protocols is plain and simple not worth the term "smartphone".

        I wanted to switch from android to wp8.1, but since they prefer to fix "holes", that did allow carddav/caldav to other services then google, instead of proviidinf full acess, WP completely disqualified itself for business use and for secure provate use. It's a shame

        Seeing how you can already use your own Cal & CardDAV (i.e. OwnCloud) by using a nonexistant Google/iCloud-Account, this should be a no-brainer to implement.

        My company uses CalDAV and CardDAV and right now I cannot use my Windows Phone to keep up with work. Should be easy to fix since you added CalDAV for Google...

        Hi,

        The Cal Dav and Card Dav support in Windows Phone 8 prior to 8.1 could be tricked into using other external servers. This loophole seems to have been closed in 8.1 which is a shame as it worked really well.

        Can I request that you allow an advanced option in System> email+accounts so that those of us who use CalDav and CardDav on our own servers or with other service providers can set them up.

        Method:

        1) Try to set up an account for CalDav or CardDav in Settings > email+accounts

        2) Note there are only options for the main big players in the market: Yahoo, Apple and Google

        3) Users cannot add CardDav or CalDav accounts for their own servers or use other third party providers

        Expected:

        Windows Phone 8.1 should have the same support for CalDav and CardDav accounts as the competitors iOS and Android do.

        Thanks!

        I am running a private cloud server based on owncloud for my comlete family spreading the information on mulitple devices like Windows 7 PC, 2 Android phones, Ipad, Iphone and now I wanted to start using the nokia 925 with WP8. On all other devices / OS I am successfully syncing contacts & calender but not with a Windows Phone !!!! I bought the phone because i suggested this is a commodity functionality. For a private usage an i dont want to go to goolemail or other services I don't have any controll on ......... sorry typical german ! but we love our privacy.
        It should not be a be deal to delete the function blocking for other services than Google !

        CardDav=Vcard and please support the reference number ("REF:field:" in vcard. every vcard version support this. see wikipedia vard. It contains date of last change. Please also in outlook.com.
        Best woudl be if you extend vcard for additonal fields: date and time of cration of contact; and last change.
        And that you can sort in outlook.com and in windowsphone for this

        I switched from Google & AppleMail to a company in Germany. But without CardDAV, CalDAV... it does not make sense for me to use WP8.

        Currently I use a small trick, but that could not be your solution, if a customer do not use one of the big mail-services.
