InputField not editable when in Edit Mode


I am rendering a VF page in Customer Portal and hoping to use inputField. Issue is that the field is not showing as editable, this happens when rendered from the portal (as a portal user) and my in my app, see code below.

<apex:page sidebar="false" standardController="Contact">
    <apex:form >
    <h1>Hello, {!$User.FirstName}</h1>
        <apex:pageBlock title="PP Form" mode="edit">
            <apex:pageBlockSection title="Personal Details">
                <apex:inputfield value="{!}"/> 
                <apex:inputfield value="{!}"/> 
            <apex:pageBlockSection >
                <apex:commandButton action="{!save}" value="Save"/>

Thanks in advance

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

Are you referring to: Customer Portal User Licenses or Service Cloud Portal User Licenses depending on the user licenses, some users don't have have access to update contacts, make sure your using a license that has access to 'Contacts' here:

Possible Suggestion/Solution #2

Name is a read-only field that's basically FirstName and LastName concatenated. Try this with either of those fields, and make sure that the profile has Field Level access to those fields.
