sure how it is about you but for me, Outlook lacks one important field: private
mobile phone numbers. Outlook has many fields for contact details, like
Assistant phone number (very useful), Business Fax, Home Fax, Other Fax (three
fax number fields? ), Pager (who is using a Pager today), Primary and Radio
(what ever it is) and even Telex (though the last Telex was disconnected in the
late 80s in the last century) but Outlook 2007 has just one filed for mobile
I'm not going to say that all the previously mentioned fields doesn't make any
sense anymore today but please - why just one Mobile field after Microsoft just
recently introduced its new Outlook 2007, Exchange 2007 and Windows Mobile 6?
Wouldn't it be the perfect timing to introduce new fields?
The point is the following: Most people I know are carrying two or more
mobile phones these days (and no, only something <1% are geeks). One for
business purpose and one private and therefore most of my contacts have at least
two MSISDNs which I need to remember and write down anywhere. But I have one
Mobile field in Outlook (2007) only and therefore one Mobile field on Windows
Mobile smartphones. I've started to add additional mobile phone numbers into the
Car field which worked good for the first 10 contacts or so but now, for most
contacts I cannot remember anymore if the Mobile or Car number is the private or
business number since it always depends which mobile number I've added first.
How about you? Are your business contacts, friend and family members are
carrying more then one mobile phone only and how do you add more then one mobile
phone number to your Outlook? Do you also think Outlook 2007+ should better have
new fields since the fields above are not representing today's world of
