Part 1. Importance of Contacts

Communication is the primary reason why we all posses a phone and that communication cannot occur without having contacts at our disposal. Contacts are very essential even in conducting business. Some business meetings are announced through messages and calls. We also need contacts to communicate with our loved ones or families when we are not close to them.
