    When composing an email just type in the first letter and the contacts for that letter will appear for selection.

    When you receive an email and want to save the contact just tap on the name and you will get an option box to create a new contact.

    If you do what Leelai suggested, above, you will be able to look it up in the Contacts App.

    Then tap the plus (+) icon that is at the right of the TO: field. Or you can open the Contacts app, find the person, and tap on their email address there.

    Contacts created and added in email will be added to your Contacts App.

    Yes there is a Contacts App, it's a native App, meaning it came already loaded on your iPad.

    For printing, the easiest way is to get an Air Print Printer which is compatible with the iPad, here is a list of those suitable.

    If you don't mind copy paste; here is what I've gathered on the subject of printing to date. Corrections and suggestions are always welcome.



    ----------------------------------------------
    Some printers are directly compatible with AirPrint on the iPad. If you want this feature be absolutely certain the printer supports AirPrint before buying. Some printers may require a firmware update to work. These are usually available on the manufacturers site. If you get this kind of printer you can print directly from within apps that support the feature, which is many.

    iOS: AirPrint 101

    Of course some of us already have printers and do not want to buy a new one. There are several ways to do this.

    One is to use a printing app on the iPad.

    Most (or all) printing apps can only print pictures and/or files that have been copied to that app via Open In or another method. Several printer manufacturers have their own apps for their printers. In general those apps will probably have the best results, quality wise.

    The second method is to load a program on the computer that will emulate an AirPrint compatible printer. Your computer must be on and have the printer available to it. The cheapest (free) is Airprint Activator. More features can be had with FingerPrint (mac and windows) and Printopia (mac only).

    Printopia - Ecamm Network
    FingerPrint - Collobos Software
    How to Install AirPrint Activator for Windows?

    A few printers (mostly HP's again) can be set up with their own email address. PDF attachments can be sent via this address to be printed. The last review I saw (many months ago) said it could be quite slow (big files not recommended), and sometimes the emails got lost and never printed. The advantage was that you could literally send/print from anywhere you have an internet connection.

    For small business owners and those with more than one printer who would like all their printers to work, but don't want to leave a computer on all the time. The Lantronix XPrintServer is a small box that connects to your network and is supposed to detect and make all your wireless printers available to iOS as AirPrint printers. I haven't seen a full review on it yet, so do your research.

    Some NetGear router models support NetGear Genie, which will add AirPrint support for printers on your network. If the printer is not wireless, it must be shared on the network, and the computer it is connected to must be on.
