The contact card contains all the individual fields of information about a single contact, such as; Name, company, phone numbers, email addresses and street addresses. This is similar to the way each card in a rolodex contains information about a specific person. The contact card can be viewed by Activating a contact from the contacts list.
When the Contact card is first opened, it is in View mode. In this mode allfields you have filled in about the contact are displayed. Using an Activate gesture on a phone number, email address, or street address will dial the number, start a new email message, or open the maps app respectively. The notes field is also displayed in this mode. This is the only field on the screen you can activate for editing.
From View mode, pressing the "Edit" button will switch the card to edit mode where you can update all the fields, or delete the contact card.
