Storing Contact Number Default Setting
When I save a contact the number saves to the "Work Number" field by default. How can I change so that it saves to the "Mobile Number" field by default... for years I have manually cleared the work field and pasted the number to the mobile field... PIA.
Thanks in advance by posting the solution and making my BB experience that much better...
It's the little things that drive me nuking futz!
I don't think that is possible. I think it always stores as a work number by default. That happened to me on my Pearl, Curve and all bb's prior to my now Bold.

Can't get seem to get the Pinstack software store right now so I can't give you a link, but do a search for an app called SaveNumberAs. It was made in response to a post on another site complaining about this very issue.
EDIT: just went to the site where I first saw it and it no longer seems to be in their store!

Ya I had this same problem. Its just something I learned to deal with

Hard to believe... oh well.
Blackberry does revert to it's roots here. Since it started out as business device, it defaults to work numbers.
A little annoying, but overall not too bad. You do get used to it after a while. And... since it's not an iPhone, you can just cut and paste it in the correct number slot!
