Questions and Answers

When I press the edit contact button on my Samsung Galaxy S4 the fields are gray and won't let me edit them?

I press the contacts icon, then find the contact I want, then hit the edit icon. The fields that show are gray and do not allow me to edit them.

Greyed out and non editable contacts are the result of transferring contacts from an old phone to a new one. This happens most often when you are moving from an iOS or BlackBerry device to a new Android device. To edit contacts that have greyed fields, you will need to create a new contact for each individual and add or edit the new information in the new contact. Then, once the information has been transferred over to the new contact, simply delete the old contact. It's certainly a pain, but that is all you can do at this point.

Just purchased a Galaxy S4. Updated my contact list. I've deleted contacts who keep reappearing for some unknown reason. Any thoughts?

What does the pink square next to contact names in contact mean?

My friend has a Galaxy S4 and he dropped his phone but now there's a pink square next to all his contact names. He doesn't know what that means and nor do I. I've been searching but nothing explains what it is.
