How do I manage my contacts?
The Samsung Contacts app gives you all the tools you need to stay in touch with the important people in your life. Your contacts are more than just names and numbers and you can show that by adding a range of additional information including a photo, your relationship and their address. You can even give your contacts personalised ringtones and vibration patterns so that you know who is getting hold of you before your phone has even left your pocket.
Please note: depending on your device and operating system the following screens may look different but the steps should be the same
Please note: you don't need to complete every section to save a contact. Only one section needs to be completed to add a contact
Please note: SIM cards are not designed for storage and can only hold a certain amount of contacts. If you are saving contacts to a SIM because you are swapping phones, the Smart Switch app makes the process quick and easy
Please note: if you don't see a menu icon, tap the options icon in the top right of the screen instead
To use the speed dial, hold down the speed dial number assigned to the contact you wish to call on the keypad. For example if Brian is saved to speed dial number 2 you would hold down 2. If your contacts speed dial number has more than one digit, hold down the last digit. For example, if 324 is the speed dial number you would tap 3 and 2 but hold down 4.
If you wish, you can set a ringtone for the group. This is a good way of quickly identifying who is contacting you.
