Open menu over a record in your Call log.
Select from menu: "Copy 12345678" (12345678 - represents a phone number).
After that open your Address Book on the device, select a contact. Open menu and select "Edit".
Set the cursor on the right place, open menu and select "Paste".
Save and close screen.

I love it! Thanks Tibilisoft for this short cut. I have been using shift key and scrolling over copying, then goin to address book and finding name, edit and pasting - but I like that way too!!! You are great!!
And to our guest, WELCOME to the FRUms!

PS: Please don't tell me to copy and paste. That's a LAME work around and not a real solution.
Blackberry should be embarrassed at having such lame functionality.
Here's what the phone should do:
Lets say I've a contact John in my adds book # 323 333 3333
Now John calls me from his work/desk phone 444 222 1111
I'm done with my call and I see 444 222 1111 in my call log.
I should be able to
Simply click on the name and have the option of either
a. add as new contact
b. Append or modify existing contact.
If I select option a. I enter a new name and I'm done
If I select option b. I should
I. be able to replace an existing number (with confirmation)
ii or insert the number into an empty phone field with no confirmation.
I find it unacceptable that a $500 phone cannot do this. All my old Nokias and Sonys have been able to do this for years

I could not agree more. The 7 + step "Work Around" is NOT a "Solution."
Maybe I find the BB so darn frustrating because I've used other PDAs that did not have as many issues as I find with the BB.

Agreed, I have duplicate entries spanning my address book, as I don't need to have to copy, browse contact, edit, scroll and paste a new number.
For text messages you cannot even click to copy the number, you have to highlight it.
This is my second BB, I am not going for a third.

Hi, I am following up on this issue, as I was reminded of it, again, when trying to add a contact.
Does anybody know the proper channels we can go through? Thanks
