    Question Radio Label in Contacts

    I noticed, after adding a new contact, that the default telephone label is "radio" what does that even mean?

    Not sure... and I’ve not seen it before. There is an option to ADD FIELD at the bottom of the ADD CONTACT screen, but 'radio' is not one of the choices... it is obviously a 'custom' label... if you tap on the label ('radio') it gives you a list of labels to assign to that field - pick "Home" or "work" or "iPhone"... and there’s a custom entry here, as well. Has anyone been pranking with your phone? That is a very odd situation...

    Not a custom label. At least I have it as well and can't remember ever entering it.

    Here's my list of labels when editing a contact:

    I've never created a custom label and Karenkcoulter can attest that it is on her phone as well.

    I don’t doubt you or Karen... but it’s very strange... I don’t have it and I’ve checked several entries... and on my phone and my wife's.

    I have seen this on two iPhones so far after upgrading to IOS 7. Can't get rid of the screen to simply enter an iPhone number into Contacts. Seems like a bug.

    It shows on mine because of one of my contact accounts. Maybe Hotmail or something.

    This has been bugging me since the final release of iOS 7, I don't recall seeing it on beta versions.

    I believe this is an issue when using a Microsoft Exchange account for contacts. Can those who have this issue confirm that?

    I don't have this on mine. I believe it might have something to do with that.

    I have the Radio label and I use Gmail contacts. However, I do use Exchange to bring it over rather than go directly through Gmail.

    Confirmed! The Exchange did it. I also had this "Radio" label and couldn't find previous "iPhone" label. After I turned my exchange account contact off, my phone contact went back to normal without the "Radio" label, and with the "iPhone" label. Thanks!

    It is NOT obviously a CUSTOM label. I have the exact same problem, it started when ios7 update came out and since then I cannot ADD customer labels to the Contacts. Sometimes I can edit it and sometimes I cannot edit that specific detail.

    Default Re: Radio Label in Contacts

    Hey guys first time poster. I decided to post here because I was experiencing similar troubles as the ones you guys were and when searching about it came across this post. I can attest that this was mainly due to the presence of Exchange account but that isn't the whole of it. In the Mail, Contacts, Calendar settings at the bottom of each group you can set your default account. Basically you can have separate default accounts for your e-mail, contacts and calendar. In my case my default contacts account was set to my exchange account thus causing the issue of not only having weird labels but also not being able to set custom labels. Anyways hope this helps anyone else that is having the same issue and is looking for a solution.
