Menu items with this type initiate phone, text message, or e-mail contact with a specific person.
To add a Contact item to your Menu, open the Design The Menu screen, tap the Plus button under the main list, and select Item type > Contact.
To pick a particular contact (person) and contact method, tap the Pick contact button. This will open the Pick Contact dialog box which contains two tabs:
- From Contacts
Lists all contacts from the "Contacts" application. After selecting a contact, its data is automatically copied to the Custom tab:
Allows selection of means of communication with the contact, as well as providing specific addresses (in case they weren't copied from the From Contacts tab). Put check marks next to the methods that you want to use with this Menu item.
There are two ways in which Contact items work. The behavior depends on the number of selected communication methods in the Custom tab:
- If only one checkbox is checked, this Menu item will launch the selected contact method directly.
- If more than one checkbox is checked, this Menu item will always give you a choice of the selected contact methods.
