    To add a contact

    1. From your Home screen, tap Icn sony home apptray normal, then tap Icn sony app phonebook.
    2. Tap Icn sony btn add contact.
    3. If you have synchronised your contacts with one or more accounts and you are adding a contact for the first time, you must select the account to which you want to add this contact. Alternatively, tap No backup if you only want to use and save this contact on your device.
    4. Enter or select the desired information for the contact.
    5. When you are finished, tap SAVE.

    Note

    After you select a synchronisation account in step 3, that account will show as the default account offered the next time you add a contact.

If you have saved a contact to a particular account and want to change it, you need to create a new contact and select a different account to save it to.
