Add a photo to contact

We can add a photo or profile picture to each contact stored on the OnePlus smartphone, which will appear next to the name in the Contacts or Messages app.

For example, when we receive a call from the contact, the specified profile photo will be displayed on the caller or message screen.

Before selecting a photo, the Contacts app on the OnePlus device will ask us whether we want to select a picture from memory or take a new photo directly.

Set calling SIM card

When using the dual SIM feature on the OnePlus smartphone, we can also assign a SIM card to the stored contacts, which is automatically dialed on each outgoing call without the device asking which number to use.

Note: For contacts that do not have assigned a SIM card, we are asked before the call and we can also set the default SIM for outgoing calls to the phone number directly.
