Adding a Contact from a Text on Your HTC One (M8)

By Bill Hughes

Your HTC One (M8) stores all your contact information in one place. You can add a new contact when someone calls, texts, or emails you. Your smartphone also can add information to an existing contact.

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

  1. Open the text screen (shown in the following figure).

    Your phone only shows the digits from the phone that sent you the text.
