    its actually simple. i hope you are familiar with your phone and using hangout for messages.

    * when you get a message >open hangout>tap on the message>on top left, tap on the small triangle under sender's number>tap add to people>at the bottom it should say create new contact.
    * when you get a call>tap on the blue receiver bottom left>tap the clock bottom left for recent history>tap the number>in the middle tap add to contacts>at bottom create new contact.

    If you are going to add a lot of contacts, it's easiest to log into your gmail account from a computer and add them there, they will be synchronized to your phone the next time you run account sync.

    Generally Google account is set to sync automatically, so add a contact to GMail/Contacts - look in your phone and it's there seconds later.

    This also means that when you get your next Android phone and sign in to this Google account your phone will automatically pick up all of your contacts.

    No - on Gmail, you can create a contact with just a phone#. Email ID is not required.
