    Okay, so I added a Google Voice phone number to my contacts list for the first time in GMail today, and labeled it as such. I go into my contacts on my Sprint HTC Hero after it has synced up and it calls this number "Grand Central" and I know that is what Google Voice was originally called.

    My question is why, when I try to text this number, does it still label it as "Home" in the drop down box when I start typing the person's name in the SMS app? It would be nice if it kept the Grand Central label that it has in the Contacts app, or hey, how about call it Google Voice like it says in GMail? Is there a way to fix this? Thanks.

    No one has run into this phenomenon? Eh, I guess maybe it will not matter if I switch to a different ROM.

    I just wanted to know if there was a solution. I wonder if this is a Sense UI thing or if it affects all ROMs.

    Well, I was actually talking about what shows up if you start typing a name in the SMS app. The label next to the phone number in the drop down list is "Home" for a Google Voice number.

    However, if you look directly at the contact's information it will say "Grand Central" there. I was hoping there was a way to have it put "Google Voice" or "Grand Central" or really ANYTHING other than "Home" so it was easier to know which phone number to use for a text message.
