    Why is this not "obvious"?

    Can it even be done?

    Can you modify a contacts tele number?

    Geez, I must be one really stupid MF as I can't find a way to do any of the above.

    Edited to add: Ok, Ok, I am one stupid MF, you have to edit the contact. Seems to me that android has taken a step backward in that you don't directly manipulate things like contacts. You have to go into an edit mode.
    I am sure others will lambaste me over this but I think this is old fashioned.

    Edited again: OK, I press the minus sign to the right of the tel number I wish to delete, a little trash can appears, I press save and viola! NOTHING HAPPENS, the number is still there associated with my contact.

    Edited yet again: OK, you first must delete all the text of a tele number then it will be deleted. Geez, you'd think that this, being a primary function of a phone, would have been looked at by a usability group. I am starting to think that androids make great little bitty computers but not very great phones. Primary purpose
    has taken a backseat to all the extra crap.

    On my Atrix, you just pull up the contact, hit the menu button and hit "delete". I just deleted a few contacts that I don't need in less than ten seconds...

    edit: Oops I see you are just trying to delete a phone number. Yes, you hit the minus button and then the trash can.
