I have some contacts who changed their mobile numbers. Originally I wanted to delete their former phone numbers. But when I do so I can't see their names in call/sms history anymore.

So my request is this: offer a possibility to mark a number as outdated and sort them extra (at least last and/or colour greyish). This way I can see the contact name in history but dont use this numbers (by mistake) when calling.

Little addition: the telephone types and categories are nice. But handling would be even better having a free text area for classification. I have some friends and collogues with more than one private / work phone.

Good idea that!

As a workaround I change the names of old contacts so that I can see it with one glance, like this;

"Brother" --> "Brother (old)"

A toggle for "active", perhaps? The idea is good. I would use that function myself.

It would be nice to be able to prefer one number over others. Could also be set to call the numbers in a chain, eg. if one doesn'answer in 30s. The aame kind of chain calling could also be used for ICE-numbers.

I think this is highly related and will also cover this: https://together.jolla.com/question/7509/missing-note-field-in-contact-details/

@hoschi: thanks for linking. I also see a kind of relation but there is an important difference: I request another categorisation for a phone number (or in general a communication object). Whereas the linked request from @donaggio asks for more categorisation options for the communicator subject!
