    How can you change the "real" default phone number that Gesture Search uses when you select a contact? Here's the scenario....

    - Start Gesture Search
    - Draw an "S"
    - Steve Smith is at the top of the list - the contact I want to call. But Steve has 3 phone numbers. The third number has been set as the default by long-pressing the phone number and selecting "Make Default Number". This is the number I want to call.
    - I select Steve Smith and Gesture Search calls the second number listed under the contact.

    Why does this happen?

    I have found that checking default has not worked since I've had the phone.

    Thanks!

    I was considering deleting the contact and re-entering the phone numbers to see what happens.

    Anyone else?

    Just tried switching numbers around. Made one default. No help. The D2 seems to have a mind of its own.

    Here's some scary behavior:

    - I deleted the contact from my Google contacts running on my PC.
    - A few minutes later, I checked "Contacts" on my Droid and the contact was gone. Expected.
    - I re-index the db in Gesture Search, and I chuck all stored history in the app.
    - In Gesture Search, I jot in the name of the deleted contact, and Gesture Search displays it! Still with the wrong default phone number - even though the contact record is not in Contacts any longer!!

    I checked this over a over a few times and the contact was still there. So I uninstalled Gesture Search, reinstalled it and the contact was gone.

    I re-entered the contact in my Google contacts on my PC, with the proper phone number at the top of the list. Then I re-indexed Gesture Search and there's my contact, with the proper phone number as default.

    Still, no answer to my original question, and some additional weird behavior to boot!
