“OnePlus phones running OxygenOS 9.0.x builds are automatically deleting contacts from speed dial”
Following the large scale complaints against OnePlus phones constantly erasing contacts from speed dial menu, the vendor has assured that the issue will soon be fixed with an upcoming update. The bug has affected multiple models and software versions, including the latest OxygenOS 9.0.x. Users first reported on OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T forums that they are experiencing the daily deletion of speed dial contacts. Soon OnePlus 6/6T and OnePlus 3/ 3T users were seen making similar complaints.
A OnePlus spokesperson has told Android Police that the issue will be addressed in the next update. The company didn’t give the exact timeline for the fix, but looking at its past track record we can expect it soon. Until then, you’ll have to resort to typing contact names out.
