Now this is a piece of functionality that has been bothering me since my first BlackBerry. When you get called by a new number you can go into the call list, select the number, hit the menu key, and add it to your address book. The problem is that RIM seems to think that all new numbers are work numbers. A friend of mind asked me about this recently and I told him that I have been copying and pasting numbers into the mobile field for years.
Would it kill RIM to add a prompt asking what type of number it is? Even my age old Sony Ericsson t68i had this feature! Or better yet could RIM let us add a number to an existing contact? RIM has PIM management down to a T on the BlackBerry which makes me wonder why there is such a glaring oversight such as this….
Has anybody managed to find a way around this? Or do we once again need an entrepreneuring developer to step in and fix the little things.
So I add this to RIM’s should have always been there feature list:
- Silence camera
- Default number other than work…
Got any others to add?
