I imported contacts from n900 and it turns out that I can't edit these contacts, edit or delete a number that is already in a contact card! I also want to mention that added as favorite contacts in People are not shown with the photos from social networks (I mean thumbnails) on top of the app. In contact card everything is ok with the photo

have you imported via bluetooth? After I had done it the first time I experienced the same as you, then I imported them once again and only after that I can edit them normally

Err, any ideas how to do this now, 1½ years after the import? I don't have the original phone nor the imported file anymore.

It works for me (SailfishOS You know that you have to use the pulley menu, right? Simply pull the menu down until you select edit.

All my Contacts came from MS Exachange sync, so I can't help you with that, sorry.

I guess if you import (or rather read) contact data from a social site (like your friend's phone nr from fb), it's logical that you as 3rd person can't edit that. On the contrary to data where you have editing rights. Does this answer your question?

I just found why does this happen! Read above
