    You have to set the contact's numbers to "Mobile phone" (or whatever it's called in English). Only the numbers set as "Mobile phone" will appear while sending a text message.

    Sync your phone with Gmail, go into your Gmail account on your PC, edit the contacts and change mobile No's to Type Mobile No.
    Save and re-sync back to your phone.

    If you don't want to edit every contact one by one, another option is - Go to Messages - Settings and scroll down until you find an option "Use all phone types" and tick the checkbox next to it. The disadvantage of this method is that when you want to send a message you'll see all your contacts, not only those with mobile numbers.
