If you add a phone number to contacts with phone app the number type is automatically set to home. Now I would like to change that type to work but it seems to be impossible. If I add work number in contact and copy the home number there I don't have possibility to delete the home number. If I leave it empty the given number appears in there.

The solution is spelled out at the discussion behind https://together.jolla.com/question/1580/how-to-add-multiple-phone-numbers-of-the-same-type/ question.

"Long-tap on the desired number/e-mail then a little pop-up comes."

Ok, but do they stick? Is the People app showing different labels correctly for contacts that have many phone numbers ot addresses?

Yeah, why it shouldn't? o.O That's one thing (and you've had problem with that) how the labels are assigned at import time; but once they're in the People-app and manupulated on Jolla, of course it stays how you set it.

@CsTom 'of course it stays'..? quite confident abt the nature of the labeling bug, then.. ;)

Well, Jukka, all labelling bug I saw was related to importing (vcard or sync), none of them "loosing whatever I set on phone yesterday".
