When I add number into Nokia mobile, then synthesize with outlook, even

through number is classified as phone number under my mobile phone, but

outlook classify it as other category. That is the big problem, when my Sony

Ericsson synthesize with Outlook, all numbers cannot display, because Sony

Ericsson would not recognize any phone number under other category. I don't

want to change 1000 phone number from other category into phone number

category.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to massively change the contact's

category?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

You can export your Outlook Contacts to an Excel file. Here you can easily

change the column header to reflect the correct phone number type.

After you have made the change, delete the contacts from Outlook (or move

them to a separate Contacts folder to create a temporary backup) and then

import the Contacts again into Outlook.

If all things went successful, remove the contacts from your phone before

synchronizing so you are sure no duplicates will be created.
