Have just got my first Andriod phone - Samsung Galaxy S. My contacts are all on the sim card as individuals - brought over from the previous phone. I am trying to sort them into groups but there seems to be no way to do that. The 'Groups' tab is present but I can't see how to get an individual to move to, or appear, in a group.

Very frustrating but maybe I am doing something wrong. Perhaps the contacts need to be on the phone memory or something? Comments appreciated.




Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I have a Hero running senseUI so I don't know if it will translate directly. To add a contact to a group I select a contact > edit > groups , and tick the appropriate button.

NB. These are my phone contacts not my sim ones (although they were transferred from sim originally).

Yep I tried that but looking at "Contact > Edit" the only options available are to edit contact name and number. No option like "add to group".

I'm using the People app on my HTC Desire - not sure what the Galaxy S uses. In People app you start from the Group (existing or a newly created one), then click "Add to group". You're presented with a list of your contacts and you can tick all the appropriate ones.

Think you're right, they need to be on the phone not on the SIM.

Yep. As I said higher up they are my phone contacts not my sim contacts.  Although they both can appear in my contacts list, the sim ones only have name and number, the phone (or google) contacts have heaps more editable, including addresses, emails, groups, home phone etc.
