    Is there a way to add a number from the call log to an existing contact? Forgive me if it is obvious, but I cannot find a way to do it. Thanks in advance.

    In the call log hit the BB button>copy(whatever the number is)
    Go to your contact, select the place you want the number to be BB>paste.

    That's the only way I know to do it.

    There's an option to "add to address book". Push menu while hi-liting the #

    This is used for an existing contact



    New contacts, Use the "new" contact add button

    I think that I read somewhere that you have to go into contacts --> options --> general options and set "allow duplicate names to "No". Then you will be able to add the call log numbers to existing contacts. I'm still a newbie though so don't scream at me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it just now, but it doesn't work. Weird that this is not possible. All my prior non-smartphones were able to do this. Oh well, no biggie. Thanks again.

    Not a natively supported capability. Yeah, I know... stupid. There was a 3rd party app that can do it, but that's it. Don't know why RIM won't add it in.

    Civic - you always know what you're talking about. So, I'm assumong the error is on my part. I took a screen shot from my call log. I scrolled to the number I wanted to add to my address book and pressed the menu button. Why do you say that adding a caller to your address book from the call log is not a "supported capability"? Am I missing something...

    Yes, he was referring to the op question about adding to an EXISTING contact.

    OK - that makes sense. So, the question is...

    I have John Smith in my address book with a home number only. John calls me from his mobile number. I want to add the mobile number to the address book without creating a new contact.

    The only solution is to copy the number >> go to contacts >> edit >> paste

    am I understanding this?

    Yes, that is correct.

    I just use the copy number then go to address book.. It's stupid on RIM's side, but whatever, it doesn't hurt me too much to go around a little.

    Yes you can!!! My husband just got the new Z10 and was having trouble. Here is how you do it. Press and hold the number you want to add and a menu screen will pop up at the right margin. Then select the profile icon with the plus sign and voila you can select add new contact. Hope this helps.
