    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,
    Cliff

    Hi everyone. I posted this in the new member section but thought it should be here also. 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 my wife, Sue, did.

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.

    This doesn't work for me. Right now - I have both an email address and phone number for a single contact marked as "primary". When I hold down email - it opens an send to screen. And on phone number - it offers call, new message, and set speed dial.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks Cliff -
    I've been struggling with calling the wrong number on so many of my contacts for about a month now and finally thought to check out forums...
    It worked and all's well.

    OK, if i have set a number to be the primary, how the heck to I de-select it? I do not want a primary contact number. I can change from the persons' work to their cell easily enough, but i cannot for the life of me figure out how to make no number the primary...
