You need to give the specifics for the community to help ie. what is the error message or what is preventing you from adding a phone number..

That's the problem.There is no error.

There's just no way to add more details in contact except a single phone number.
Usually you get a little plus Icon that you press then you can chose which detail to add.
I don't have that,and when I press edit,all I can do is edit the single phone number I entered or the name of the contact.
My only idea was maybe its acting this way because,storage is pointing at the SIM card,So I tried to change to the SD card as storage,which didn't change nothing.
This is a brand new Huawi that I bought,last month.
There's no reason Such strong and expansive phone will not have ability or memory space to not allow me to add more details to the various contacts.
I have also a low cost Chinese phone that have those options.
I think the problem started when the device was first configured.It asked me if I want to import my contacts,and I said yes it just imported ton of contacts I had in Facebook,with email addresses etc,before I did that I think I had an option to add normally stuff.
Only way I can do that now I think is to reset the device,which I would prefer not doing unless someone help and tell me where in options you enable contact editing.

Thanks.

P.S. I have just checked and actually in the existing contacts that it imported,there's all the options I wanted,but when I create a new contact,it don't give me those plus signs to add more details!

Hello Segal,

you must save your contacts either on phone or on Google account.

I prefer to save my all contacts onto my phone. And whenever I need I can get them all.

not sure what that means,but I was able to solve the problem myself.
I first did a hard or factory reset,I wiped everything off!
it didnt work lol..
All it did was remove the apps I installed.It left my account and contacts untouched.
Then I continued my search I stumble on a suggustion that actually did the trick:
Ive installed an App that removes all your contacts.
When they were all removed,the bug was fixed!
I can now create my contacts normally again and add all the details I wanted.
So problem solved,and hope maybe this help someone else who stumble on the same problem as I did :)
