Good thinking. This must be a Google/Gmail thing?
As mentioned prior, I did not have the Custom option showing on my Evo 4G LTE running Sense 4+, Android 4.1.1, & People v4.5.468279. NO Google account configured.
I configured my Google account on this phone and went to add a contact in People. People now has my Gmail info in it and now when I set up a Contact I have the choice to set up a Phone only contact or a Google contact as well. When selecting Google contact I have the option of 'Custom' added to this list of types. I'm also able to set up mutliple 'Mobile' numbers for the same Contact.
Also note - on the computer when accessing Gmail and browsing the Contacts saved to it independent of the mobile device, the 'Custom' type is one of the options within. (haha, ninja'd by Marc
Androidexpat, do you have a Google/Gmail account actively configured on your phone, and do you have People set up to display your Google contacts?
