Let me elaborate. On your phone press the:

1. Menu--scroll to Tools & Settings---press OK
2. Look for Security, press OK
3. Enter the last 4 digits of your phone #, or whatever you set the lock code to.
4. There should be an option to delete contacts. Becareful not to press the Reset Default option, for it will erase everything (ringtones, pix, filx, screensavers, etc..)

**If the Security option is not seen in the Tools and Settings, then choose Call Settings or Phone Settings. It should be in one of these.

When I go on contacts on my I phone 6 plus there is no plus icon so I cannot add contacts

Is it possible you have used all the available slots to save contacts too. Ie. Some phones allow only 150-200 contacts to be saved at any one time. Failing that check your overall memory (usually settings, my device /phone, storage. If your phone has to much stored on it, it will affect the performance of your phone and is ability to save effectively, try deleting large files off your phone through file manager, be sure to save somewhere else if you want to keep the files you delete to free up space.
