    Welcome to Android Central!

    Do you not get the edit pen icon when you are on the contact you want to edit up top?

    I know this thread is stale, but came across it while searching for an answer to the same problem on my non-Edge Samsung S6. Below is a work around.

    Description: All of the contacts on my phone downloaded and synced with my Google account. However, some of the contacts had an "EDIT" button available in the default Samsung Contacts app; some did not. The key difference was whether the contact belonged to a group named "My Contacts." For some weird and frustrating reason, only contacts tagged in this group were editable in the app.

    Work around:
    1. Open up the default Samsung Contacts app
    2. Tap "GROUPS"
    3. Tap "My Contacts"
    4. Tap "ADD" -- this will display all the contacts *not* in the "My Contacts" group
    5. Select some or all of the contacts listed; in my case, I tapped the "ALL" box at the top


    If you add contacts in bulk (several hundred in my case), then it will take several minutes to sync those changes to your Google account for the first time. You can check your progress at Settings -> Accounts -> Google -> {your username} -> "Sync Contacts". Be patient. Eventually all your Google contacts will be in a "My Contacts" group, in addition to any other groups you've defined.

    I won't call this a "solution" because someone - Samsung or Google - needs to fix this or provide a warning or a solution, or something.
