Forum Question: Anyone Else Having Issues With Editing Contacts In iOS 5?

Since upgrading I have lost the ability to add or edit an existing contact. The only way I can do it is via the recents list. It seems the “+”/”edit” button in the top right corner is missing …. I compared my iPhone 4 to a friend who has a new 4S (same iOS 5 version) and his still has the + button … what setting have I missed in the setup ???

      looks like yo uhave togo into iCloud setting and turn on contacts (and calendar for that matter) by merging them with iCloud the edit and + buttons majically re-appear…. hope this works for you

        That didn’t work for me despite so many people saying it did work for them. My problem is that some, but not all, of my calendar events are missing the “edit” button ever since I updated the software to 5.0. Any other suggestions?
