    If the number is listed as 'Mobile' in a persons contact (for example), say "Call [NAME] on Mobile".
    It's quite easy; and ask it "What can you do" for help.

    If, for instance, they're labeled as "home" and "mobile", just tell Siri to "Call <name> <label>."

    I find that just saying "can you call Sam on her mobile" or "Call Sam's cell phone" works fine 90% of the time.

    I'm not sure though if you have created a custom field if it would work so well.

    If you just ask it to call a name, it will come back and ask you which number, i.e., home or mobile.

    In this instance, it's the same use case as the previous Voice Control.
