Need More Room In Your ICE Contacts?
Here’s how to do it.
Like most smartphones, your Android phone lets you change, add or create fields inside the contact, so that you can customize it as much as you like. To add fields to your contact, press and hold the Field Name or the “Other” Drop Down until the Select Label menu appears, then check the boxes next to the field/label you want and click OK. Of course this depends on your model of phone, but this works for most Androids.
This will bring up a menu of alternate field names to choose from, including the option to Create Your Own Field, so you can add whatever information you need.
In fact, we suggest that people put all of the information they possibly can into their iCE Contacts. For example:
Your emergency contact’s Main Number/Cell number/Work number, by adding additional phone number fields
Their Email Addresses & IM, Twitter and Facebook address (in case landlines are down & you need to send an emergency message through email or a direct message via social media)
Other info, for example, days that the contact is at a certain location
Another great field to add is Relationship, to tell emergency personnel who your contact is to you.
But what about information that doesn’t fit into a field? That’s when you turn to your new best friend – the Notes section. Notes holds quite a bit of information like your Allergies, Current Medications or the Names & Numbers of your Physicians. So if you run out of room in the regular fields, simply put the rest of the information you need to communicate, in there.
While you’re here, be sure to check out our other posts including How To ICE Your Android Phone and How To ICE Your Samsung Galaxy to learn everything you need to know about ICEing your phone. And while you’re feeling proactive, don’t forget to put ICE Contacts on your spouse’s and kid’s phones too, along with each other’s contact information.
