Chapter 5. Managing Treo Contacts > Contact Essentials

Contact Essentials

Most information stored on your Treo device is stored as a record, which is a discrete chunk of data that represents one logical piece of information. The Contacts application stores each individual contact on your device as a record. In this way, you can think of the Contacts application as a simple database. Because your Treo device is a mobile communicator, which implies communication with other people, contact records in many ways represent some of the most important information on your device. Therefore, understanding how to manage and manipulate them efficiently is important.

To launch the Contacts application, tap its icon on the main application screen or press the Option button followed by the Calendar button, assuming you haven't changed the default application button settings. The main screen in the Contacts application consists of a master list of all contacts stored on your device. Later in this chapter in “Categorize, Filter, and Sort the Contact List,” you find out how to filter and sort this list to help make it easier to access certain contacts. For now, it's important to just get comfortable moving around within the list by using the Up and Down buttons on the five-way navigator.
