How to Create a Contact in Your Android Tablet’s Address Book

Sometimes it’s necessary to create a contact in your Android tablet address book when you actually meet another human being in the real world. Or maybe you finally got around to transferring information to the tablet from a traditional address book. In either instance, you have information to input, and it starts like this:


Open the tablet’s address book app.

The app may be named Contacts or People or Unwashed Masses or something similar.


Touch the Add Contact icon.

If you don’t see an Add Contact icon, ensure that you’re viewing all the contacts and not a specific contact group: Choose All Contacts from the Contact menu or touch the All Contacts item at the top of the screen.


If prompted, choose your Google account from the menu.

Creating new contacts with Google synchronizes the information with the Internet and any other Android gizmos you may own.


On the New Contact screen, fill in the information as best you can.

Fill in the text fields with the information you know. Touch a field to display the onscreen keyboard.

Scroll the New Contact screen up or down to view all the fields. To add more fields, use the Add Another Field button or, if you don’t readily see that field, touch the Menu icon to choose which fields to add.


Touch the Done button to complete editing and add the new contact.

New contacts are automatically synced with your Google account. That’s one beauty of your tablet's Android operating system: You don't have to duplicate your efforts; contacts you create on the tablet are instantly updated with your Google account on the Internet.
