    Hi,

    I bought a Nokia 6230 today and I have imported all my contact through the
    PC Suite to the phonebook. My previous phone was a Siemens S55 and when
    looking up a contact in the phonebook it would dial the mobile phone entry
    by default if multiple number are given. The 6230 however dials the home
    number by default and I don't want that. How can I change this behaviour?

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    Change each and every contact.

    Personally, I use seperate contacts eg Bob, Bob Home, Bob Office, as most of
    my contacts are single entry mobile numbers, I don't keep that many home
    numbers in my phone.

    change each entry to suit. the default number has a square around it. select
    name and then number you want as the default number, then "options" then
    "set as default".

    Actually with Nokia it is quite easy. The first number you enter is always the
    default. But if you go to a name in your address book and select details.

    Once in the detail menu select the number that you want to be the primary
    number. Then select options and scroll down to "As Primary Number".

    Once you have set the appropriate choice whenever you select the name and press
    send, that is the number dialed.

    If you want to dial the other numbers for that entry, find the name, select
    Details and scroll to the appropriate number (Home, office, etc....)

    Hope that helps!

    I transfered all my data from my Siemen to the Nokai through Outlook so I
    guess the Nokia assumed the home numbers as default. It's a bit of a hussle
    but I'll do. I thought maybe it would be possible to define a default for
    everything. I guess not.

    Thanks anyway!
