Your contact list for Hotmail is not dependant on the ISP in use (your ISP enables your connection to the internet)

You would need to do 2 things for O'2010

#1 - Install download and install the social connector
#2 - Once installed - configure the appropriate SC provider
from O'2010 - menu --> View --> People Pane --> Account settings

There is really no need to do anything with the Social Connector in order to get your Hotmail contacts into Outlook. Installing and configuring the Outlook Hotmail Connector will do.

Additional note: The Social Connector is already built into Outlook 2010 so there is no separate download required. The Windows Live Messenger Connector will only add your WLM contacts to Outlook which isn't the same as all your Hotmail contacts and also doesn't contain all contact details.
