    Noob question: adding info to existing contact

    Advertisement



    Let's say I have someone in address book with their cell # and they send me an email. Can I add that email address to their existing listing from the message directly? Or vice-versa..if I have their email already and they call from another # and want to add it to their entry.

    Thanks!

    Yep, Open address book, scroll to the person, hit the menu button and edit.
    My address book has fields for 8 phone numbers (work, work 2, home, home 2, mobile, pager, fax, other). If you need more email addresses added, hit menu and select add email address.

    It would be excellent if you could highlight the phone call or email address and say add to existing contact, it is not as simple as that, but it is still easy. Simply highlight the the email address or phone number hit the menu and select copy. Go to the phonebook select the person, edit contact and find the appropriate field and paste.

    Sure can, what I do is while in the email hit menu>copy, then esc back out of the email and go to your address book, find the contact you want, hit menu>edit and then scroll down to wherever you wish to insert the info whether email or phone number and hit menu again>paste. Then simply save and you're all good!

    Re: Noob question: adding info to existing contact

    Thanks for the info! I can do the copy/past/add, but the old nokia allowed me to add to existing contact from the msg directly.

    OK...I'm letting my old Nokia ways go now.

    Repeat: I am a blackberry user now. I am a blackberry user now.

    it would be nice however, to be able to add to existing contacts... i've seen this on other devices as well - Treo's included...

    but i'm so happy with my Berry i'll take the extra step or 2....
