    Default add a contact from incoming call

    I have been searching and searching, but I can not find how to add a contact from an incoming call.

    I highlight the call, bring up the menu, and there is NOTHING for "add contact".

    The menu gives me the following:
    Forward
    Delete
    Mark unread
    contact "caller"
    compose other
    call voice mail
    search
    search by
    display style
    view folder
    view saved messages
    reconcile now
    message notifiers
    options
    help
    close

    Why is there not an option to "ADD CALLER TO CONTACTS?

    Nevermind, figured it out.

    Seems that if the phone number exists in the contacts, it does not provide the save as a new contact option.

    Hi Johneeo,
    Actually you can do it the way you want by going to your call log once a call comes in. Highlight the number that is listed there, and click the menu button. It will give you an option to add to contact >existing contact or create a new one. Easy once you do it. Good Luck.

    When I try to hilite the incoming call from the call log to save it to contacts it immediately starts dialing the number. What am i missing?

    Found it - you hilite it by pressing on the right edge of the screen adjacent to the incoming call.

    Default Entering contacts from incoming phone

    Apparently others are smarter than I. Every time I try to highlight a phone # to add to contacts it just dials that phone #.
    This used to be a simple action on the old blackberrys.
    The new one seems to offer new capabilities that dont mean much to me while taking away functionality that was very useful.

    If you tap the number, it's the same as clicking on it which dials the number. Instead, press and hold your finger on the number to highlight it and bring up the menu. Then tap Add to Contacts.
