How to Create a Contact from an E-mail on Your Android Tablet

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to build up your Android tablet’s address book is to create a contact from an e-mail message. Follow these general steps when you receive a message from someone not already in your Android tablet’s address list:

  1. Touch either the contact’s name in the From field or the picture by the contact’s name at the top of the message.

    The contact’s name or picture is really a menu, as shown by the Action Bar icon. It’s your clue that a menu exists.

  2. Choose whether to create a contact or add the e-mail address to an existing contact:

    • For an existing contact: Scroll through the address book to choose the contact. The e-mail address is added to that contact.

    • For a new contact: Fill in the rest of the contact’s information on the New Contact screen or Add Contact screen. Building the contact works just like creating a contact from scratch, though the e-mail address and, potentially, the person’s name is already available.

  3. Touch the OK, Done, or Save button to create the contact.

If you accidentally create a contact when you already have that contact, you can join the two.
