    Question Add # to Address Book - How to change default as "Work" #?

    Advertisement



    When someone new (not in your address book) calls you and you want to save their number, you click on "Add to Address Book." When you do this, it brings you to the screen where you enter the person's name, email, etc. The phone # is also automatically stored as the "Work" phone #.

    I want to change this default setting so it saves the # as their "Mobile" # instead. How would I go about doing this?

    Thanks in advance!

    You would still have to select it, as I don't think there is a way to change the default settings.

    brooke is correct you're stuck with the "work" as default.

    I always just add it then just copy and paste it to the mobile entry.

    It's a bit annoying but there's nothing else we can do.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ that seems to be the consensus, maybe they'll change it but we're screwed for now

    I know the "suggestions for RIM" is frequented by RIM developers. Maybe suggest it in a thread there?

    Given the historical target audience for the BlackBerry, this was a logical choice for the default number. Now that RIM is expanding the audience, perhaps see this as a setting.
