  1. When I try to add my actual emergency contact – I select “add emergency contact” – it takes me to a searchable contact list screen – I find the contact I want – I select it – it takes me to another screen where I can see the information – it is all correct – but there is no way to “add” or “save” as my emergency contact. On the screen where I can see the information – my only option in the upper left is ” <search " I go back to the searchable screen – No contact added. Frustrating. I've googled, watched videos – no one is addressing this – but I've seen a lot of questions posted that others are having the same issue – but no resolution that I can find. Wondered if you might know…
