My contacts are locked!


Jun 19, 2013, 2:49 AM
I am unable to figure out why my contacts are locked on my Extravert. The [Edit], [Erase], [Add New], [More] keys that used to be there are gone. The only key left is [Back] that extends across the area where the other choices used to be.

I have VZW Backup Assistant and using it online is the only way I can modify my contacts. I thought maybe it was the source of the lock, but a *RESET# did not resolve it. My outgoing calls have never been blocked.

I finally discovered the setting that locks contacts:

Settings/Phone Settings/Security/Restrictions/Incoming Calls/Contacts Only

Since you can't easily toggle the choice with /Allow All/, I believe the cure is worse than the disease. It's also further evidence that this is a poorly designed phone. Inconsistently, /Contacts Only/ is missing from text messages.
