Hi, I am hoping to find a solution to this problem that is currently threatening to grind my work to a halt. The job that I have entails making phone calls to several people, however, this is being made difficult by the fact that my iphone4 has now refused to have any other new contact added; forcing me to call from the favorite’s list.
IPhone cannot add new contacts after installing software updates
iOS 5 is now using iCloud so that your emails, contacts, messages and calendars can be accessed wirelessly via your network. If after upgrading your OS you are unable to add contacts after the upgrade, you just need to turn on Contacts on your iCloud option for you to be able to add contacts.
To do that, go to Settings > iCloud > toggle the slider in line with Contacts > Click on ok if it ask you to merge the data. You should be able to add, delete and edit your contacts. You can turn if off again if you like and you would have the add option still enabled.
