Local Contact List - Android

Read on to learn how to use local contacts in the MultiLine Android app.


MultiLine provides you a separate contacts list to use for work. When you use the local contacts setting, you manually add or import contacts to MultiLine. 

Before you start

  • If your organization chooses to restrict the type of Contacts setting you can use, you may not see certain Contact Source options.

NOTICE: The Local Contacts list isn't backed up or stored outside the application, so they can be lost if you lose your device or need to reinstall MultiLine.

NOTICE: if you create your Contacts list using Local Contacts, and then switch your source to Native or Exchange, the contacts you created will be deleted.
