Adding and Editing Contacts
When you create a new contact, the first thing it will ask is if you want to save it as a phone, SIM, or as a Google contact. SIM contacts save to your SIM card to be easily transferable. Phone contacts save to your phone's hardware, and Google contacts save to the Google account synced to your phone. Each type allows different amounts of contact information to be saved, however.
Once you've created a new contact or selected one to edit, the contact card screen will come up. We'll walk you through the "Phone" type of contact card, since SIM card contacts only allow for a name and phone number. First, enter the contact's name in the box at the top. You can enter first and last name, and a display name if you want them to appear in your contact list as something else. Then, you can click on the camera icon next to that box to select to associate with them. Next, enter their phone number in the next box, and touch the button next to it to label what type of number it is. (Mobile, Home, etc.) If you want to add more than one phone number, click on the add more information button at the bottom of the card and repeat. The next box is for their e-mail address, and again, if you wish to add more than one, select "add more information" at the bottom. Following that is the group you wish to add them to, if any, and then there is an events bar where you can put in a birthday or anniversary, or you can put in both by adding the second using the button at the bottom again. Using that button you can also add their address, the company they work for, and IM information for services such as AIM, Google Talk, and others. You can also click the "X" on the right next to any piece of information to remove it.
Once you've filled out their contact card to your satisfaction, simply press the save button to finish. If you create a Google account contact instead of saving to the phone, things are almost identical, but you will also be able to label their e-mail addresses like the phone numbers, the events bar will have a third "other" option, and you will be able to put "notes" on their contact card.
