I got one of these for my wife as her first Android and I'm using an iPhone. The contact list on the phone seems to only have one phone number and an email address.

I'm looking for a contact list app that has the ability to have more mobile numbers and a street address. Looking in Google Play, the apps all seem to be either an address book, or a phone app.

Can anyone point me in the direction of something that combines both nicely?

Save the contacts as Google contacts. By the sounds of it your saving them to the sim.

If you save them as Google contacts you'll get almost unlimited fields and they'll be backed up to her gmail account. It works the same as icloud for your iPhone.

Yep - thats the answer all right.

Really handy to have them backed up in gmail as well - if you have to replace the phone you just sign in with your gmail account and sync them - wham! sorted....
