    Contact - changing primary phone/e-mail

    Hi everyone. My wife and I each got a Droid Incredible a few weeks ago and have been learning ever since. Sue is much more patient than I and has a good mind for puzzling things out so I get her to help me. After I synced my contacts with Facebook I noticed the primary e-mail and phone number for many had changed. Now I understand the information from Facebook cannot be changed but I did want to change the default e-mail and phone number which brought me to this site. I search for a solution, found a lot of great tips on other features but did not find the answer I was looking for but Sue did. It is so simple – say you friend Mike has his home phone number on Facebook so when you synchronized your contact information with his Facebook account, the Facebook information became the primary number but you always call him on his cell phone. Press and hold the cell phone number and another window will pop up allowing to set this number as the primary. Works the same way for e-mail addresses.

    Here are the steps: On the home screen press People, open Mike’s information, press and hold the number or e-mail you want to change to primary, an Action window pops up allowing you to change this one to primary.

    Take care,
