#U32: Don't save contacts & still be able to connect

We all have to save a contact to call or to send a text? Even if you had to call or send a Whatsappp just once, you have to save a contact.  This results in dead contacts in our phonebook. As per our research, we do not speak with 80% of our contacts, even once a year. It's time to declutter your phonebook.

Solution: Don't save contacts, unless necessary
Now you do not have to save a contact just because you have to call or send text message. But you can still search them if you have called or they have called you even once. If you want to save a contact, you still can.

Whatsapp without saving a mobile number?
You can WhatsApp any contact or non-contact from SharkID. Swipe contact > click on WhatsApp icon > send a message.
