Re: How to add unknown number to existing contact
Well, I can't seem to do this on my Galaxy S II.
If I go to the call log and hold my finger down on the call it will let me "Create Contact" or "Update existing", which is what I want to do.
I tap on "Update existing" and it lets me search for and find the contact.
I tap on the chosen contact and it brings up a short display showing only the link (facebook), the name, and the email address.
From there I can only go back to the contact list (via the "X") or tap the picture to go to the full contact listing, but there are no phone number spots - no place to enter the number - all I see are Email, Connections, Groups, and Ringtones. (Weird - why have ringtones if you can't enter a phone number??).
From there I can only save the contact by pressing the pencil, go back to the contacts list, or go back to the previous short display.
How can I add a phone number to this contact (which was sucked in from my facebook friends list, incidentally), let alone do it from the call record?
I sure appreciate any help. Thanks.
(Maybe I'd be happier if I just rooted this thing so I could deal directly with Linux and got rid of all this happy horse$h|t that is supposed to "make it easy for me". It can't be worse ... )
I did find a way -- the "Create contact" button creates a contact with just the phone number in it, then if I name it the same as the contact I want to add the number to and hit the menu button it will let me "Join contact" by name and add the phone number into the existing contact that way. It's clumsy but it works - still, seems like they could have designed this better. How many decades have we been designing software??
If anyone knows a way to "Update existing" contacts from phone records I'd like to know it. Thanks again ---
