Default [7250] Phone number display format & Default number save location

Please Login to Remove!

Two quick questions - it doesn't seem like it is, but is it possible to display phone numbers with dashes, either on phone dialing, or contact entry/viewing?

Also, is it possible to change the default location a phone number is stored as when saving a number as a new contact? IE. the default goes to the work phone number, and I'd like to have it go to the cell (or mobile) phone number instead.

Thanks for your time

Took me the longest time to figure this out. While editing in your contact list, in the phone number field hold the Alt key then push the sym key then the Q/W key. They didn't make it easy. As far as dialing it doesn't automatically add dashes while dialing. You just get a long row of numbers that are hard to read when there are ten digits there. Hope this helps.
