    Managing your contacts

    View all topics

    You can create, edit and synchronise your contacts in a few simple steps. You can select contacts saved in different accounts and manage how you display them in the phone.

    If you synchronise your contacts with more than one account, you can join contacts in your phone to avoid duplicates.

    NoteSome synchronisation services, for example, some social networking services, do not allow you to edit contact details.
