Can't add to contacts on Z Fold 3 after latest update


I've discovered an issue with my phone and I'm not sure whether it's a glitch or something I have done by mistake.

Every time I try to add a contact, whether via my Contacts list or WhatsApp, I keep getting the same message - "Can't add contacts to read-only accounts". This has been ever since the latest Android update.

Please can you tell me what I can do to fix this problem? I've tried looking for permissions etc via Settings, but to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
