Open the Contacts app on your Android. Look in your app drawer for an app called “Contacts.” It typically looks like a head-shaped emblem in one of three colors: blue, red, or orange.
Tap the icon for the new contact. Typically, a plus symbol (+) is used.
Decide where to put your stuff. You will typically be prompted to choose an account and/or a storage place depending on your contacts app (internal storage or SIM card). Your new contact will be saved here by WhatsApp.
For the contact, type a name.
Type the international phone number for the contact. Start by entering the “+” (plus) sign, then the country code (for example, 44 for the UK), and then the whole of the person’s mobile number. 
A UK phone number might resemble this, for instance: +447981555555.
In Mexico, a 1 is required after the country code (+52).
There must be a 9 between the country code and area code in phone numbers in Argentina (area code +54). This number needs to have its “15” prefix removed in order to have 13 digits.
