    Hi there,

    I have a Samsung S21Ultra and I need help with a contact problem.

    My husband's work line has recently changed and I updated the new Phone number but the old number still shows up as "Other". I would like to edit it and delete it but I'm having no luck. I know I could delete the number and add it again, but I don't want to lose the info that's on there as I share his business contact info all the time. As far as I know, it doesn't share his old number but it does show up as an option to call everytime I call his work number.

    If anyone knows how to fix this I would appreciate it. I'm not tech savy but I can usually figure things out on my own, but I'm stuck on this one and this is my first post.

    Thanks in advance,

    Go to contacts>contact's name>edit>find contacts number>delete the number by selecting the number to be deleted and use the backspace to actually delete it>click on save at the bottom.

    As soon as I click edit. The "other" number doesn't show up. It's only on the contact page. Maybe it's just logistics and it will go away once it hadn't been called in a while but I'll see if I can screen shot the problem.

    That's kinda weird. Have you tried just rebooting the phone to see whether that will clear it?
