Default Multiple phone numbers in address book contact

Please Login to Remove!

All,

I can't for the life of me seem to enter more than one phone number in each contact. i.e. if the contact person has more than one mobile number (don't ask me why), I can't seem to find another field to add the additional number. I know I can change the "user 1" etc fields but would prefer not to. I have tried hitting the blackberry button in the edit view but adding another number does not seem to be an option although adding an additional email address is.

Thanks in advance for your help

Just one field labeled mobile. I believe the user fields (mapped to outlook or whatever) are your only option. This question came up a few days ago and I didn't see any better idea posted at the time.

Hmm, there are no fewer than 8 phone number fields, are you already using all of those - including the 8th one called "Other"?? I guess if you have "Other" filled already, and don't want to try to remember that Home 2 or Work 2 or Pager is a second mobile, you're stuck. Honestly, I've never had a contact where 8 numbers isn't enough - I do have a couple with 2 cell numbers, and use "Other" for the second.
