    Have you enabled iCloud, I think since ios5 you need a iCloud account for contacts editing and creation.

    Hadn't thought about that. Even if iCloud is set up, the setting to sync Contacts might also need to be switched to "On". Although I went into my iPad's iCloud settings and turned it off and the "+" is still in my Contacts App.

    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the Search box (at the top-left of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.

    Please take a moment to view the information here to get the most out of your iPad as well as our forum:

    With regard to your question...as previously mentioned, iMessage only works between iDevices (iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch). The other person also has to have upgraded to iOS 5 on their iDevice. If you get the "not registered" error, that means that all of that criteria has not been met (at least yet). More here:

    (iMessage = Page 47)


    Apple - iOS 5 - See new features included in iOS 5.

    Welcome again and enjoy!

    i know how to

    you can't do it directly on contacts, but go in "mail", type in an email, once a blue bubble forms around it, double tap it until it says, "create existing contact" and then you can add all their stuff, and you can edit by doing exactly what you did to make the contact, instead, select "add to contact". worked for me!
