iPhone recognizes other iPhones?
Is it just me or does the iPhone recognize other iPhones? Anytime I've added an iPhone contact and instead of defaulting to mobile, it shows 'iPhone'
Is this the case for anyone else? Or is this 3.0 related?

Odd. I have 3.0 and I don't see an iPhone option. I also have at least one current contact with an iPhone, and it's still just showing him as "mobile."
Did your iPhone contacts just suddenly change to iPhone or did you recently edit them?

I have an iPhone option, but I'm not getting it to default to that. I've created new contacts with numbers that I know are iPhones and it still defaults to mobile. I've even deleted the numbers of stored iPhone contacts, went to my recent list, and added them from there... still defaulted to mobile. But there IS an option to select iPhone.

Ok, Alli and I decided to investigate and I've reached a conclusion, well kinda. Alli's phone still isn't showing iPhone as an option on her list, so I don't know what's up with that. Probably has something to do with exchange?
The iPhone does NOT recognize other iPhones, it's simply defaulting to the next unused label in the list. 3.0 seems to have added iPhone as the 2nd option on the list (for some). So if you already have a mobile number stored for someone, then the next choice is "iPhone". I played around with adding to different contats with different types of numbers stored, and it always chose the first unused label on the list.
Not nearly as cool, I know.
So now the question is why don't all iPhones on 3.0 beta have iPhone listed as an option?
