    Default iPhone Contact Number
    I just noticed there is a iPhone contact type. My friend just got an iPhone with a new number and texted me. When I went to add him to my contacts, it showed the number as an iPhone.

    Anyone find any benefits or reasons to keep the contact type iPhone?

    Purely aesthetic, it doesn't add or take away any features. Just like you can also put custom number fields as well. For example, I have one contact 'Grandparents'. Then, I put for example, Grandpa's number with 'Grandpa' title. Same for Grandma. Then when one calls it says 'Call from Grandparents' and then under that 'Grandma'.

    Ya that was what I was thinking. Just curious if any apps that use other iPhones to connect with read the iPhone contact item into their App any differet
