MVC Tutorial: not appearing data in the Edit functionality

Following the tutorial below, when I click in Edit it only edit the ID nothing else. It also is not saving the modifications. What could be wrong?

http://www.asp.net/mvc/tutorials/iteration-1-create-the-application-cs

Here is the Edit.aspx
<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<ContactManager.Models.Contact>" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="TitleContent" runat="server">
	Edit
</asp:Content>

<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">

    <h2>Edit</h2>

    <% using (Html.BeginForm()) {%>
        <%: Html.ValidationSummary(true) %>
        
        <fieldset>

            <div class="editor-label">

robasta,

No, I mean the link that appears in the Index.aspx which has the options Edit, Details, Delete for each role.
Here is the Controller:
namespace ContactManager.Controllers
{
    public class HomeController : Controller
    {
        private ContactManagerDBEntities _entities = new ContactManagerDBEntities();
        //
        // GET: /Home/

        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View(_entities.Contacts.ToList());
        }

        //
        // GET: /Home/Details/5

        public ActionResult Details(int id)
        {
            return View();
        }

        //
        // GET: /Home/Create

        public ActionResult Create()
        {
            return View();
        } 

        //
        // POST: /Home/Create

        [HttpPost]
        //public ActionResult Create(FormCollection collection)
        //{
        //    try
        //    {
        //        // TODO: Add insert logic here

        //        return RedirectToAction("Index");
        //    }
        //    catch
        //    {
        //        return View();

        //}

        [AcceptVerbs(HttpVerbs.Post)]
        public ActionResult Create([Bind(Exclude = "Id")] Contact contactToCreate)
