    Don't see a way to do that when I go to call history. What the hell? The only thing there is add a new contact but that's not what I want.

    Just done this on my Hero. Next to the call history item in Phone is a + button and tapping that allows me to create a new contact or add to an existing contact. Alternatively, long press on the item and select Save to People.

    Doesn't seem to work from the Call History in the People app though.

    No way to do this. The closest thing you can do is - longpress the number, press save to contacts, copy or cut the number, and cancel adding a new contact (don't save it), and then paste that number to your existing contact.

    Is this a bug? Or a lacking a basic feature?
    Did somebody find how to do this?

    1. Tap 'Phone' on your homescreen, hide the keyboard, scroll to the missed call, hit the small '+' icon on the right.

    2. Enter "People" application, scroll right to Call History, scroll down to the missed call, tap and hold on the missed call.

    Both ways produce a menu with "Save to contacts" option.

    ticho,

    1. produces the option to add the contact which indeed adds the nr to a selected contact. Thanks for this.
    2. produces "save to contacts" which when pressed creates a new contact and there is no option to add to contacts.

    So, is there a way to add numbers from the call history?

    The first described way gives me a menu with following text and two buttons:

    Save to People
    +1234567890
    [Create new contact]
    [Save to existing contact]

    Isn't this what you are looking for? Does it matter which "call history" roll are you using? It's the same data after all.

    I agree that the first described method works. However the call history program that comes with the phone gives you a better list of calls. For example you get the time and date displayed. By pressing the phone you get only a list of numbers where you need to press and hold on the nr and then choose call history anyway to see the history of that call.
    So, the call history is quite handy for me and I use it very often. I have a shortcut on my main screen and I was hoping to add unknown numbers from there if I need it, which is the topic of this post.

    Yep... I'd really like to see this functionality as well... What's the verdict?

    As mentioned above , just click the + in front of the missedcall and you get optione "create new contact" and "save to existing contact" its working for me. :)

    ticho you are a badass! Exactly what I was looking for! Found this within a couple clicks of googling my problem. Though I didn't have to do step 2. When I hit the '+' icon it immediately asked save to existing contact which is what I wanted. Thank you!
