Lost Ability to Edit Contacts After 5.0 Upgrade

Hey everyone. I have a co-worker who upgraded to 5.0 on her 3GS and now can't edit her contacts. When you click on a contact, the normal contact info screen comes up, but there is no edit button at the top right where it used to be. I tried a hard reset, but that didn't work. This is a new one on me. Could there be some sort of security block preventing the editing of contact info?

Settings--->iCloud--->Toggle Contacts to On

I haven't had to do this as I don't have a 3GS, but I've seen others report that it works.

Thank you!

I was just coming on here to research why my DH couldn't edit is contacts. We thought it was b/c he got a replacement (under warranty) 3GS and something was wrong. But this fixed it! He is thrilled and so am I. Thanks so much!
