    Simple problem, but it is bothering me. On my Droid I was able just to highlight a new number or click on a text and it would enable me to create a contact if one had not already been created. Now I have to manually type in a contact on my Iphone. Is there any way to do this? Am I missing something?

    if you click and hold on a number you are given the option to add to an existing contact or create a new one from it.

    Also, if it's in your recent calls you can tap the blue arrow to the right of the number and it gives you that option.
