    Switched from Blackberry to Incredible and have hopefully a simple contacts question. My listing for a friend, John, has a cell and home number. His listing will give me an option to message each listed number. But, I only want to message his cell and would like that to be the primary action for messaging (in fact messaging his home could preferably be deleted since it isn't possible). Holding down the number doesn't give me the option to change like the calling listings do. Right now it looks like the primary messaging option is email, which I don't want. When I create a message in Handcent and type his name, the two numbers come up but there are no descriptions to help me distinguish between his cell and home numbers.

    I do have contacts synced with google with some Facebook links if that is important.

    Thanks!

    Here's how this works on my Hero (also an HTC w/ Sense) - Open the contact from the people app and long press on the action you would like to set as default. This should pop-up an option to do it.

    For some reason, that only works with the calling options (phone icon), not the messaging icons.
