    I just purchased an iPhone 4 after going from a 3G to a Moto Droid (complete trash) and was just adding some contacts in manually. My question is what is the slot for iPhone number for. When I create a contact I put the name in and then in the mobile slot the number. After entering this a line appears to enter an iPhone number. Is this supposed to be used, I only know a few who do have them and don't where I should enter numbers. When I go back to a contact that I just entered a mobile number the facetime button option is there. Any help on what the whole distinction deals with would be appreciated. Whether to use mobile or iphone to slot a number in was never something I ran into in the past. Thanks.

    It doesn't matter which one you choose.
    I guess you could enter the friends you know have iPhones in the iPhone field so you could know that you can text them with emoji and such, but it really doesn't do anything.

    I put it in so I can see who I can emoji, like the previous post said. It doesn't really matter. I guess it appears as it is promoting Apple products?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see an intuitive phone like the iPhone use that category label in the future to automatically build you a list of contacts that you know can be facetimed. Umm, I know it's not normally a verb, but I just made it one :)
