How to Add Contacts from Texts with Galaxy S 4

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 intelligently integrates all your contact information in one place. If anyone new contacts you via a call, text, or e-mail, the S 4 makes it easy to add the new information to an existing contact or to add a new one.

To add a contact from a person who just sent you a text for the first time, follow these steps:

1

From the text screen, tap the telephone number at the top.

Because your phone does not recognize this number from your current contacts, it only shows you the digits from the phone that sent you the text. To add the contact to your database, move to Step 2.

2

Tap the telephone number to add this person to your contact database.

This brings up the pop-up shown.

3

Tap Create Contact.

Tapping this option brings up the pop-up shown here.

4

Save this contact to your Gmail account.

You can save it to another account, if that's appropriate or useful. Selecting the account brings you to the contact screen shown.

Add any information you have about this person and tap the Save button in the upper right corner.
