The next screen that opens is your Contacts:



From here, you can access and manage contacts for all your Burners. Note that you'll have to grant access on your device before Burner can manage your device's native contacts app.

Mute and Block

To silence a contact, you have two options:
  • Mute - Calls and messages from this phone will not ring or notify you, but you will see the call and message history in your Inbox.
  • Block - Blocked numbers will not ring through or be able to message your Burner. Call and message history will be hidden from your Inbox. Blocked numbers that call you will get a notice that the number has been disconnected. Finally, blocked numbers go into their own "Blocked" filter on the Contacts screen.
You can unmute or unblock a number at any time.
 

Edit a Contact

Edit a contact by tapping on their name or, if unnamed, their number.
  1. The Contact Details screen will open next

    • Name (the top field) 
    • Photo (tap the person icon to change the photo) 
    • Notes
    • Which Burner this contact is associated with (tap to associate/remove)
