Questions and Answers
How do you edit the Notes section of a contact on the S5?
I have about 25 lines of Notes on a contact. When I touch the edit icon, only the most recent two lines appear and are editable. The remaining lines cannot be seen or edited.
Editing the notes section of a contact on the Samsung Galaxy S5 can be a bit tricky if you have more than a few lines. Here are two ways you can edit the notes:
- 1This will let you edit it, and then you can copy the edited text and paste it back into the contact.Using a text editor, select all of the note text, and then copy it, pasting the note into a text editor on your phone.
- 2Using this method, you will be able to directly edit your contacts, and make any changes or additions to the notes that you need to make.Log into your Google Account, and manage your contacts.

How to remove contact name on the front screen of Samsung?
We have added 3 names on the front home screen, then its easy just to press button and phone. How do we remove them again. We don't want to remove them from the contact list but just from the home screen
Tap and hold the contact name on the home screen. Drag it up to the "Remove" icon. This will not delete the contact itself: just the icon will be removed.
I'm looking for a PC contact manager for my S5?
Kies used to do it and now Kies 3 does not. So basically I'm looking for iTunes type software for the S5, that not only handles contacts, but music, apps, games, etc
One of the best programs to edit and manage your contacts, including backing them up, is AirDroid. Other useful features of this program include:
- Manage your text messages: With AirDroid you can actually send messages directly from your computer.
- Use your phone camera: You can access your Samsung Galaxy S5 camera directly from your PC. This will let you take photos or record a video.
- Install and uninstall App: With this program you can manage the Apps on your Samsung Smartphone.
- Move files between your PC and your phone easily: You can use drag and drop to share files between your Samsung GS5 and your computer.
- Managing contacts: You can edit, add, delete, and backup your contacts.
There are also many other great features of this program.
In order to install and use this program, read our great VisiHow article on how to use AirDroid: Wirelessly Manage Your Android from a Web Browser with the AirDroid program.

Trying to save my contacts to my Google account from my Galaxy S5. Some of the contacts are not linked to the Google account. How do I edit individual contacts to link to my Google account? Have not found an answer to this problem. Some are linked to device and SIM card only. I have tried: Searching the internet, went to the AT&T store watching YouTube videos. I think it was caused by: By me not linking to the Google account in the first place
