Droid Bionic: Import Contacts from Social Networking Sites

You have many ways to get contact information into your Droid Bionic Contacts list. One easy way is to pull in all your friends and followers from your social networking sites. The operation is automatic: Simply add the social networking site to your phone using the Social Networking app or any other individual social networking app. The Droid Bionic instantly mixes your social contacts in with the phone’s contacts.

When you use the Maps application to locate a coffeehouse, haberdasher, or restaurant, you can quickly create a contact for that location. Here’s how:

  1. After searching for your location by using the Maps app, touch the cartoon bubble that appears on the map.

    For example, this figure the app has found a nice place for a bachelor party.


  2. Press the Menu soft button and choose the command Add As a Contact.

  3. If prompted, choose in which account to store the contact.

    The information from the Maps application is copied into the proper fields for the contact, including the address and phone number, plus other information (if available).

  4. Touch the Save button.

    The new contact is created.
