Step 1: Open the Contacts App

To begin adding contacts, you need to open the Contacts app on your Android device. You can usually find this app in your app drawer or on your home screen. Tap on the Contacts app icon to open it.

Step 2: Tap on the Add Contact Button

Once you have opened the Contacts app, look for the “Add Contact” button. This button is usually represented by a plus (+) sign or an icon with a person and a plus sign. Tap on this button to start adding a new contact.

Step 3: Enter Contact Information

After tapping on the “Add Contact” button, you will be taken to a new screen where you can enter all the necessary information for the contact you want to add.

Note: Fields marked with an asterisk (*) are usually required, such as Name and Phone Number.

To enter contact information:

  • Name: Enter the full name of the contact in this field.
  • Phone Number: Enter the phone number of the contact in this field. You can use either local or international formatting for phone numbers.
  • Email Address: If you have an email address for the contact, enter it in this field.
  • Add Photo: To personalize your contact, you can add a photo by tapping on this option and selecting a photo from your gallery or taking a new one.
  • Additional Fields: Depending on your device and version of Android, you may have additional fields such as Company, Job Title, Address, and more. Fill in these fields if necessary.

Step 4: Save the Contact

Once you have entered all the required information and any additional details you want to include, tap on the “Save” button. This will save the contact to your Android device’s Contacts app.

Step 5: View and Edit Contacts

To view or edit your contacts at any time, simply open the Contacts app on your Android device. You will see a list of all your saved contacts. You can tap on a contact to view their details or make any necessary changes.


  • If you want to add multiple phone numbers or email addresses for a contact, tap on the relevant option (e.g., “Add Phone” or “Add Email”) and enter the details.
  • You can also add notes to a contact by tapping on the “Add Note” option. This can be helpful for adding additional information about the contact.
  • If you want to organize your contacts into groups or create custom labels for them, explore the options available in your Contacts app’s settings.

Adding contacts to your Android device is an essential step in keeping your personal and professional connections easily accessible. By following these simple steps, you can quickly add and manage all your important contacts on your Android phone.
