5 WOrk with contacts
Ubity UC Mobile uses contacts saved on your device. Ubity UC Mobile’s contacts are continually synchronized with your native contacts. Adding, modifying or deleting a contact from one list updates the other list.
On iOS, set up multiple sources for contacts (for example, iCloud, Exchange) and merge all into the native contact app. If you do this, you can also access all contacts on Ubity UC Mobile.
Update Unified Contacts
When multiple entries are merged as one entry on iOS, modifying a contact within Ubity UC Mobile updates all the contact sources. For example, if you’ve set up the contacts from iCloud and Exchange and link the three entries as one entry on iOS, you’ll see one single contact on Ubity UC Mobile with unified information from the three sources. Editing this contact on Ubity UC Mobile also updates contacts on iCloud and Exchange. Use the native Contacts app to update only one source, such as iCloud.
Choose a contact as your favorite for quick access to dial and send SMS. To add a favorite, tap Contacts > Favorites, then tap +.
