Re: Unable to add a new contact and edit existing contacts

Hello !


Try the following:


Simply delete all the  Messenger apps (Yahoo, MSN or Live) which you might have upgraded recently / delete apps which were recently installed before the error which actually started occuring .


After that unplug the battery while the phone is still "on" and restart the phone.


In fact I had deleted a whole bunch of apps to facilitate my OS upgrade as I did not have enough memory on my Device.  


This not only helped solve my above mentioned problem but also made my phone restart in less than 3 minutes (the earlier reboot was done in not less than 15  minutes !!).


Therefore my conclusion as from the above incidents is to keep your apps in the bare minimum so that ur phone performs to the best.


Hope this resolves your Problem!
