    After highlighting the number you want to save, press and hold the center button. A menu will pop up with "Save to Contacts" at the top.

    My apologies...I didn't see the word 'existing'. I would like to know this, as well.

    (but the more I think about it, this really seems like a lot of work, compared the much-simpler alternate way of just either jotting down the number on a piece of paper & then simply editing the existing record, to add in the new number, or just putting the number to memory in your head for a sec & making the contact edit - but hey, those are all too easy, and don't really use the technology, so here goes!)

    What I would do to get a number out of the call log & into a contact:

    Do a redial from the call log. As soon as you see 'dialing', hang up. You'll next see that screen about adding a new contact or editing an existing one, etc (unless you've turned that feature off) - choose the 'add to existing' one.

    of course the next question is - what if the number is a work or mobile & it doesn't get added in to the right slot on the contact? Easy enough - once that number gets added, and you're in the contact record, you'll note that the newly pasted number is already highlighted - if you need to move the number to a different 'type' - work or mobile or whatever - just hit Menu/Cut, then go to the work or mobile whatever field and hit Menu/Paste.

    There you go. (again, honestly - the 'keep it in your head for 20 seconds' approach is probably easier....

    Thanks for the thoughts. I would really like just a thing such as hold on item, Copy #, then paste into existing contact.

    Anybody know if a RegEdit could help achieve the above goal?
