    Hello folks,

    I have a samsung galaxy ace with android 2.3.4 GINGERBREAD and getting problems when I go to add two or more phone numbers to same contact.

    When I push the add contact button, the device don't ask me if want to save the contact on the telephone or SIM and it shows two boxes, the name and the number, only this. When I save the contact the number goes to SIM, how can I put the number on the device? and other thing.... I can't add other phone number to the same contact.


    Does anyone here can help me?

    Thanks for your reply, but the problem is this, I haven't no option like plus sign or anything that kind, only show two boxes where one is the contact name and the other is the contact number. I have no option to record the contact on phone or SIM...

    When in Contacts press the menu button, select more and then settings. Now select "Save Contacts to" and select the option you want.

    Hi,

    Tap Contacts > then tap Bottom left MENU > More > Settings > Tap ' save new contacts to' > then select what you want(always ask or phone or SIM etc.,).

    If you select 'always ask' means, you are asked to save the new contact to phone or SIM.

    In SIM contacts you can't able to add more numbers and datas like email etc., and it only shows name and number.

    Only in phone contacts you can able to add more numbers by tapping '+' symbol.

    It's really simple: open your Contacts, press the menu-button, then select "Import/export from/to SIM" and select the contact you want to transfer to the phone.
     
  10. Thanks everyone - I've been puzzling over these problems for weeks. Why on earth don't the suppliers make this clear?

    Go to "edit contact"
    try to type something in the same field of existing contact number.
    another field will appear so you can add another phone number

    Thank You
    This doesn't work for me I have a Galaxy S6 edge with Android 6.0.1 (marshmallow)
    But The only thing I can do is to replace or edit the existing phone associate with a contact
    It seems not possible to have more than 1 phone per contact
