In the past the private number, business number and at least mobile number could be "name as such". Now all phone numbers are with the same "telefon" tag ( in the German ). The same applies for emails. It is not possible to define business / private mails.

You can change label (Personal / Work / Other) as they call it in English by long-tapping the field and selecting Change label. And then you can change type in similar way. Hope this solves the problem for phone numbers?

I'm sorry, but I didn't understand the email part of the question.

the german pulldown only has "keine", assistent", "pager", "video" and "mobil" so no home / work .... better than nothing. Thanks.

the email allows no specification home/work etc.

Did you check out both menus, "label" and "type" -- in the "type" menu there are that kind of selections you mentioned. But please check out the label menu also .

The emails in the contacts also do not allow entering business / private date. I´ll try your tip. Thanks. Jarmo

There seems to be the same Label menu for email field also. Long-tap the email field and you'll see label menu with selections (for me options are: Personal/Work/Other)

Btw. I'm running the latest official Sailfish release Ohijärvi.
