    Good afternoon,

    I would like to know if it's possible to add more than one mobile number to each contact. I don't know how people do in other countries but here in Portugal it's normal to see people with 3 mobile phones (one for each carrier) and it would be good if I could add all those details to my contacts (because a mobile phone number is not an home number or a work number!!!).


    Cheers,
    Manuel

    Im pretty sure you CAN`T do it for now , this might be done in the MANGO update doh ,

    for now the only work around is to add the second mobile as a work/home number.

    unless there is a way to do it with HOMEBRUW.

    I have Mango and you can only have 1 mobile number per contact but you can add 2 home and 2 work numbers per contact if that's any help to you manewinho. :)

    What you could do is save each number as a different contact and link all of them together. All of the mobile numbers will show up as separate entries and will allow you to choose which to call or text. For example if you have a contact named John Do. Enter another contact John D, John, etc. And link them all together.

    Yeah this is kind of dumb, a lot of people have google voice numbers as well for secondary numbers.

    The problem I had with the single Mobile number was that you can't text any number that isn't a Mobile. While you can still only have one number of type 'Mobile' in Mango you can actually text any other type (Work 1, Work 2, Home 1, Home 2, etc...) of number.

    I'm on NoDo and I have 2 mobile numbers and 2 text numbers under one contact. Just do the method I described above.

    ummm... I've got multiple contacts on my phone that each have more than one mobile number listed so I don't know why people are saying that it can't be done.

    You select the contact you want to start off with and you see the 2 link chain at the bottom, press that and select the contact you want it to merge with.

    In Mango you can switch to text a different phone number for the contact just like you can switch to Facebook chat or WLM. Its very handy. Any phone number comes up and you just have to know if you can actually send texts to it.

    It would be nice to have multiple "mobile" labeled fields though.
