    Adding and editing contacts

    You can add, edit or delete contacts on your device and from synchronised accounts. Add contact pictures or set individual ringtones to personalise contacts. You can also edit contact information about yourself.

    To add a contact

    1. Find and tap Contacts icon (Contacts icon).
    2. Tap (Add new contact icon).
    3. If you’re adding a contact for the first time and have multiple accounts synchronised to your device, select an account. This becomes the default account for saving your contacts. Later you can select where to save the contact by tapping (Add new contact icon) > Saving to.
    4. Enter or select the desired information for the contact.
    5. When you’re finished, tap SAVE.

    Note

    To change the default setting for saving your contacts, tap Options icon (Options icon) and select the new account. Alternatively, select Phone contact to save contacts only to your device. To move an existing contact to a new account, you must create the contact again and save it to the new account.

    If you add a plus sign and the country code before a contact’s phone number, you do not have to edit the number again when you make calls from abroad.
