Valerie,
What do you meant a "contact"? was it a number that you want to create a contact? Or you wanted to export your contact outside of the phone?

You would need a gmail  address to do it.

1. Go to “Settings”

2. Choose "Accounts and sync"

3. Tap the “Add account” button.

4. Tap “Google.” --> “Next” button.  “Sign in” and enter your Gmail login information.

5. Tap the “Sync Contacts” option.

6. Tap the “Finish” button.

@Valerie: You can create one (it is free) or you have to manually enter each contact by yourself

@Valerie, sometimes it is just called Accounts.

Once you are into Accounts (within Settings) you need to add your email account
