sorry to resurrect this thread, but i was adding a new contact to my 16 ViP running 5.0.1 completely stock and it does not have the "iphone" option when adding or editing a number...it just has "mobile"
anyone else have this issue?

HA!! I never noticed this before till now lol. Ok, so I have quite a few contacts that I can change the label to iPhone for, but ummm, silly question.....does this do anything significant or is it just to label that particular contact as an iPhone user?

My initial question however pertained to in a contacts info, where the cell# would go, if it's an iPhone user that you could chose "iPhone" as opposed to "mobile" for say a blackberry user.
Does choosing "iPhone" do anything different with the way that particular contact is handled?

I believe that using Exchange means giving up both the "iPhone" label and the ability to create a label using the "Custom" option. I lost mine as soon as I decided to sync via Exchange w/gmail--it seems like they don't support non-standard labeling.

Real Exchange has different options available altogether.
iCloud offers more options via the CardDAV protocol and Apple's own options - using a real Exchange account, Google Contacts, or some other contacts format will result in the "other" category being used more often than not.

Side note: Other than helping you to identify those folks who have the same great taste as you do (snickers go here), there's a subtle change in voice dialing. If you label someone with an iPhone, you can't say "Call XXXX, mobile", but instead have to say "Call XXXX, iPhone". Then, instead of the drab response of "calling xxxx... mobile", you get a little faux excitement from your phone in the response, like "calling xxxx... iPhone!"
It's one of those personal touch self advertising kinda quirky things I like about my Apple devices.
Other than that, I haven't been able to distinguish any other differences with that label... yet.
