I had a very simple task, create an application that gets all the email contacts of a user (Windows Live Account Hotmail).
I have followed the SDK's and created my web application. Everything works correctly, except that I can not access the email because it is a "Restricted" scope.
So I have been attempting to get the "ViewFull" scope but so far have failed.
I have spent more than a week trying and to achieve this simple task above.
However the information currently available is either extremely poor and confusing or has been deliberately obfuscated by Microsoft.
From searching the msdn support forum, all the links point to the same area that simply run in a circular loop.
Sadly because of this many developers end up just resorting to screen scraping.

I spent the last days trying that too. It is very clear that WL_Contacts.View will not retrieve Emails, Phones and Addresses information.
Why? If the user consented and he is the owner of that information, what's the point?
Looking old posts it seems that there was a kind of form one could apply for clearance, but I could not find it.

Here is the information I received regarding the .FullView scopes:
The email addresses of contacts are only available in the WL_Contacts.ViewFull scope is restricted.
For the scenario of sending emails to a connected user's friends, we have shipped an invite sending API which we think should address your requirement.
For the scenario of getting email addresses of the connected user's friends to find which of their friends are already on your site - we don't support this scenario right now, but are looking into it in the future.
