Add Entries to the People App

You can add new contacts to the People app or add existing ones from your social network or Exchange ActiveSync accounts.

Add a New People Entry

Start adding your contacts on your phone. If you’ve set up an email account on your phone, you can sync your new contacts with that account.

  1. Tap home key > apps list icon > people app icon People.
  2. Tap add icon.
  3. Tap the "Name" field, and then enter the contact name.

Note: Tap edit icon to separately enter the contact’s given, middle, and family, and name suffix (such as Jr.).

  1. Select the Contact type. This determines which account the contact will sync with.
  2. Enter the contact information in the fields provided.
  3. Tap done icon.

When you tap the added contact on your contacts list, you’ll see the contact information and your exchange of messages and calls. Depending on the information that you’ve added to the contact (such as an email address), you’ll also be able to see the contact’s social network updates, events, and photos.

Add an Extension Number to a Contact Number

While creating a new contact in People, you can add an extension number to their number so you can skip the voice prompts when calling.

  1. After entering the number of the main line, do one of the following:
  • Tap pause key to insert a pause before the extension number is dialed automatically. To make the pause longer, tap pause key again.
  • Tap wait key to be prompted to confirm the extension number.
  1. Enter the extension number.
  2. Tap done icon.
