Add a contact to your Contacts list

You can add a contact by doing one of the following:

  • Searching the corporate address book

  • Using the contact’s SIP address (for contacts who use a public IM provider)

  • Adding the contact during a conversation

Note: When you add a contact to your Contacts list, Communicator Mobile requests the contact’s permission to display presence status to you. When you add the contact to your list, the contact’s presence status will be displayed as Offline until the contact allows you to view his or her presence information.

If the user accepts your request, the presence status in the Contacts list will be updated. In the meantime, or if the contact denies permission, you can view the contact’s presence status by searching for the contact.

To add a contact by using search

  1. Tap Menu > Find/Add Contact.

  2. Tap Find by Display Name, and then tap one of the listed search options.
