    The edit button on the contacts page has disappeared. Upon advice, I tried rebooting, but it didn't work. Help!

    I took a screen shot but I don't know how to send it to you. Funny thing is that there's an edit button on the screen shot buts it's to edit the photo not the contact.

    I did update to iOS 5.0. I think that's when the problem started

    How did you update ? Sometimes the files can get messed up when your wifi is unstable. Did you get the iTunes update first?

    I am no expert but I would back up in the cloud and then restore to Factory setting on my PC/Mac and restore from the cloud. If you still have the issue then I would think you need to go to the Applestore.

    Thanks for your suggestions. I'll probably just go to the Apple store

    Are you sure there is no "edit" button in the upper right corner of each contact? This is my first iPhone, but if they changed it from previous versions I could easily see it being missed.

    There is no way I could miss seeing the edit button. Plus, on the list of contacts the is no+ button in the upper right to add contacts.

    you may need to restore. Maybe even to factory settings.

    I have the answer to my problem from the Apple store. Hopefully this will help others who run into this problem. (remember, this was after I upgraded to iOS 5.0). Go to settings. Scroll down to iCloud and make sure that contacts are on. This is a bug and very often in the upgrade, contacts defaults to off and that's why there is no edit button or + symbol on the contacts list.

    Bless all of you who figured this out for me! I just realized that the edit and + buttons were missing and thought I had a long process ahead of me. So glad you saved me a trip to the Apple Store and a lot of aggrevation!
