    Hi,
    I updated the latest OS software on my one plus7 mobile. After I upgrade I tried to call one of my friends from my contacts it asks me to allow media, phots and etc., I deny all those because I think contacts won't require all these details. Now I am not able to call, add new contacts on my mobile. Showing a message "You have disabled required permissions".
    Please, someone, look into this on priority.

    This happened to me as well because I hadn't allowed contacts to access my location.

    OnePlus has its own contacts app instead of using the one from Google.

    As it turns out, in the new Oxygen / Android 10 version, the contacts app forces you to grant access to a large number of permissions. If you deny even one of them, it won't allow you to access any of your contacts, saying that "you disabled a required permission".

    There's two ways to handle this:

    1 - Allow contacts permission to access everything it asks for.

    2- Use a different contacts app, like the one from Google.

    I used an open-source, privacy-focused contacts app and disabled the one from OnePlus (since I can't uninstall it)
