    I have a new Samsung Mini.
    Can you please help me with adding multiple phone numbers within the same contact?
    Your guidance would be very helpful. Thanks in advance!

    Go to contacts - tap and hold on any contact - you will get menu with some options, select edit - There you can see the current contact number - just right side to that number you can see a " + " symbol - just tap that symbol you will get another box field to enter new number for the same contact.

    You can change number types such as mobile, home, fax etc.. by just tapping the current tab.

    It seems like you are quite new not only to android, but also any smartphone..Don't worry...within just a few days, you will come to know all the features and how to use your mobile efficiently.:)

    Thanks for your response and encouragement !
    I tried tap & hold on a particular contact and click edit and i get a view with existing entries which i can edit. There is no + or - sign as you mentioned...
    Please let me know what I am missing ... thanks and hope to hear from you soon...

    I think, you have saved that contact in SIM memory...usually there is no option to save multiple numbers or contact pictures etc. for SIM contacts...make sure that contact is not saved with SIM.

    If you save a contact as phone or google contact...you won't be having a problem like this.
