Nokia Lumia 800: How to add new Contacts

The Groups tool on your Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone is one of those features that once you try it, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it. And thanks to Windows Phone 7.5’s easy and intuitive interface, setting up new Groups is just as easy as adding new contacts to your Nokia Windows Phone.

To create a new Group, just tap on the People Tile at the top of your Windows Phone Start screen to open the Nokia Lumia 800’s People Hub. From there, tap the New button at the bottom of the screen – illustrated with a ‘+’ symbol – and then, on the page that opens up, just tap the option to create New Group.

Now all you have to do is name your Group using the onscreen keyboard and then tap the Save button at the bottom of the screen to create it. Once the Group has been created, you can then tap the Pin button at the bottom of the screen, to pin the Group to your Windows Start screen as a Live Tile.

With your Group created, you can now start adding contacts to it. To do this, just tap to open your new Group – located at the top of your Contacts list – then tap Edit at the bottom of the screen – illustrated with an icon of a pen – and then tap the option labelled Add a Contact near the top of the screen.

You can then just scroll through your contacts list and tap each contact that you want to add. You can then use the Group to send texts, emails and updates to the entire group in one fell swoop, as well as stay up to date on all their own updates via your new Windows Phone Start screen Live Tile

Making it quicker and easier than ever to categorise and manage your contacts, as well as keep easy tabs on their latest updates and contact them all at once, the great Groups feature is a fantastic tool on the Nokia Lumia 800 and is one that, once you try it, you’re sure to use every day from then on.

    I also want to have a group of over 100 contacts. I text all of these contacts at least twice a week so need to be able to send one text, rather than 5 or more. I asked the guy in the shop about this and even rang Nokia who said it would be possible BEFORE I bought the phone and am FUMING that I can’t do this!!!

    Wow, that’s a big group! There’s no way to add more than 20 to a group that we know off right now. The best way around this is to break this list of 100 into five groups, which will be a whole lot quicker and easier to manage anyway.
