For contacts with several numbers, assign a name for each number

If I create several phone numbers for a contact, or link several, it would be clearer to assign a separate name for each number, which is then also displayed for an incoming call.

Under sfos 1 that was possible, right? I mean opening a contact in the contacts app, editing it and then clicking on the phone number for a long time. Then click on Change classification - More. Now it's under the number "More." In the past, a dialog box opened where you could enter something yourself.

neat idea, like the much requested notes field in contacts.

I think this is not a good idea, because it is maybe not possible to sync such entries with cloud services. Then these would be missing, which would then be even worse!

I have a solution that gives you at least a little more overview of contacts. Just paste the name in front of each phone number of a contact by copying it (unfortunately typing is not possible).
