Hi,

I've got an iPhone 3GS running iOS 5, however I am unable to add a contact to my address book. There's not even a plus sign. I've restored and reset several times.

Any idea how to resolve this?
Thanks!

Do you have room? Meaning are you at capacity for storage on your phone?
Also have you tried adding it another way? Like through your recent calls list instead of the contacts app.

Turning on iCloud syncing for contacts should fix it.

If it doesn't fix it, the problem is probably related to an email account. Try deleting the email account on the phone and the plus sign should appear in contacts. If it's still an active email account, add it back in afterwards.
