I am having an issue editing contacts that were transferred over from my Blackberry and most of the posts I've read have to deal with Facebook contacts. My issue isn't a Facebook issue, it's with transferred contacts from a previous phone. My main issue is that in my Blackberry, I had wait pauses programmed in for many of my contacts, (to dial extensions, etc.), For example if the phone number was (555) 555-0000 and if you knew the extension you were prompted to press 1 and then the extension was 222, in my Blackberry contacts it would come up as 555-555-0000w1w222.
When the contacts were transferred to my Droid 3 by the helpful folks at Verizon, those wait pauses just became part of the phone number. So the above number would become 555-555-00001222. If I try to dial one of them it will try and call Guam or Figi and then disconnect. I've tried to edit them but I keep getting the error message that says "Preset contact information is not editable on this device". If I try to delete the contact and re-enter it manually, (a pain with as many contacts as I have), I am told that I can only hide the contact and then I still have to enter it manually. I've found out that instead of the wait pause, I can use a semicolon and it works great. I want to be able to just edit all of my contacts with extensions without having to hide them and then re-enter all of the information just to correct the phone number.
Is there any way that I can change the settings to allow me to edit these contacts? Is anyone else having the same issue? Please help.
