    Ok oh great gods of the android world. I am sure this is an easy one, but I am sometimes android challenged. Too many years on a BB, although now I would NEVER go back. Apparently the grass is greener on the other side!

    I do not use Google or Facebook. Is there an easy way to change? I have about 500 contacts
    Under Contacts or people, is there a way to change how the primary phone number is listed. It seemed to list all cell phone numbers as primary. Most of my customers work from an office and I dont want their cell phone as primary when looking for phone numbers on the fly. It doesnt matter if they are all changed, but it sure would be nice to not have everyones cell phone as the primary phone number. Or I can remove the primary option all together?

    Stock, unrooted, great battery life, GPS works, everything seems to work just great

    If you press and hold on the primary number, it should then give you the option of making that particular number the primary...

    I've seen the "press and hold" solution used for many other phones but for some reason it doesn't work on the TB. I have the same problem and can't get rid of a cell as the primary unless I delete the contact and start over...too many contacts to do that so for now I just live with this (and many other) quirks that Android offers.

    Long press "set as default" works under Go Contacts EX

    FrankXS - your reply made me look harder and I discovered my problem. I was pressing/holding the contact that WAS the primary number and the menu that popped up provided no method to change that. After reading your post I figured I was doing something wrong and kept looking. The trick is to press/hold the number you WANT to be the primary and one of the menu options is "Set as primary".

    I can finally change all the cell numbers away from primary!
