We've previously seen that you can add contacts to your iPhone either by importing them from your Mac or PC when you sync your phone or by manually entering them into your phone. Another way to enter contact information is by grabbing that information from a recent call. I'm currently looking at my list of recent calls, and the calls that are listed as numbers are people I don't currently have in my contacts. But adding a number to your contacts, is as easy as tapping the blue i button next to the number, and then tapping either Create New Contact or Add to Existing Contact. Create New Contact will create a brand new contact entry for a new person or business that's not already in your contacts.
Or you can add this number to an existing contact. So for example, if this number is from a friend of mine who's home number I currently have in my contacts, but he called me from work. I would tap Add to Existing Contact. Find him in my address book. Tap his name. And you can see the number has already been added here. Now, currently it's listed as Mobile. But I can tap that, to change it to a different label. I'll tap Done. And now when I go back to Recents, you'll see that the number has now been replaced with the contact's name. Now, if the person I'm adding doesn't already exist in my contacts, I would still tap the blue i button next to the number.
And then tap Create New Contact. Notice again that the number is already entered here and I can change the label, if necessary. And then I can add any other information I have about this person, like their first and last name or street address. Tap Done when you're finished, and the person will be added to your contacts. So, that's how you add recent calls to your contacts list on the iPhone.
