Parents have the ability to decide the level of Contact approval necessary for each individual device.

How to add a Contact from the Parent Portal.
Log in to the Parent Portal
Your first option is to add contacts through the Parent Portal. There is no contact app on the phone itself, but you can open up the dialer as if you're going to make a call, and you'll find contacts there. You'll also see a "+" in the top right corner. Tap there, and you'll be able to add contacts that way. Depending on what setting you've selected in the Parent Portal, you’ll either have to approve the contacts your child adds through the Parent Portal, or they'll be able to add them with no approval needed. At this time, contact images can be added only through the Parent Portal. If your child has specific pictures they want for a contact, they can always send them to you to add!
