    The title says it all...I have several numbers for some of my contacts (cell, home, work, etc.) and my car's bluetooth is only able to recognize one number per contact. I primarliy only use one number for each of my contacts, so that's not a big deal...the problem is that it will only use the number that's at the top of their list. I tried to long press the desired number and set it as default, but it doesn't bring it to the top of the list...I even tried to delete all of the numbers and reenter them in the order that I want them to show up, and that didn't work either.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how I can do this?

    Thanks!

    Edit the contact (open the contact, then Menu->Edit). Long press the label it lists first (usually Home or Mobile) and change the label, then change the number to match the new label. PITA, but it is the only way I've found to do that.

    I just tried that and it didn't seem to work. Whenever I change the order in edit mode, it always rearranges the numbers so that home is first.

    Any other possible solutions?
