This has probably happened to many of you: when calling a contact that has several numbers, the number offered is the first one for that contact, although e.g. you are calling this contact almost always to the second number and not the one offered.

It would be most convenient if the People app would move the last dialled number for that contact automatically to first place in his/her contact details.

There are two related questions: (manually move up/down option) and (assign a default number). I think that both of these ideas imply a lot of manual work (depending on how many contacts with several numbers you have).

EDIT: @vattuvarg commented: "An alternative would be to have the most frequently dialled number first." I agree that this would be even better, just thinking that maybe it is not so easy to implement. Edited title accordingly.

If it is decided to implement this feature, please - make it an option.

I much dislike all these automatic mechanisms trying to guess what I want. The different numbers have different reasons and I select very well, which one I choose for a certain call (business, private, mobile etc.): I do not want to have to search for that number each time but want to find it simply by the steady position in a non-variable list.

Like @tingo: If this feature should be implemented, please make it an option only.

Agree with @jgr, I don't want the phone to guess to whom I am going to call next.. ;)

Maybe I did not fully explain the problem. Please try this: one contact with 2 numbers, first number is home number, second number is mobile. You call the contact to his mobile. Afterwards, from the the Phone app you tap the contact's name (Quick call disabled in Phone app) as you want to call him again to his mobile, but the contact details page displayed shows his home phone number (as this is the first one in contact details). You find this logical?
