I can not add new contacts


J'ai reçu mon nouveau Xperia L1 et j'ai eu la bonne idée de nier certaines actions au téléphone. Résultat: je n'arrive même pas à ouvrir "l'application: contacts". Et il me marque la légende: "vous avez désactivé une autorisation nécessaire". Donc la question est ou et comment puis-je la réactiver ?

Merci d'avance pour votre aide.



I received my new Xperia L1 and I had the good idea to deny certain actions over the phone. Result: I can not even open the "application: contacts". And it marks me the legend: "you have deactivated a necessary authorization". So the question is where and how can I reactivate it?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Re: I can not add new contacts


Try Settings - Apps - select the app you need (contacts) - Permissions


If your phone comes from an operator, I highly suggest a complete reset and adding your info again. 

The good part is that you can relive lolthe 1st time you unpacked/configured it.


Best regards
