    Have two problems with my iphone 5c which are driving me mad!

    When I save a new contact into my phone if I get via a text message or phone call instead of typing it in then it deletes my previous contacts.

    Also, my yahoo email will not work consistently on this phone and if I delete it to reload it then I lose all of my calendar.

    Had phone a month and already phone vodafone about this but am thinking I may just have a faulty phone?

    Hi, can't think of any reason why saving one phone number would delete the other, but have try syncing the phone with ITunes. If you use iCloud and if so, are contacts being dropped from there also.

    Did you try restarting the iPhone? Be sure to make a full backup of your iPhone contacts before you take any additional action. Here's how to backup:

    When you save the contact from the text or phone call it asks you do you want to "Create a new contact" or "Add to exisiting contact". If you click create a new contact and there is already one there then I can see where it might over write the other one. So are you adding a new contact but when you check back it disappears?
