    In the contacts list, e-mails are given "labels" in the same manner telephone numbers are:

    home
    work
    other

    My guess is that this is the way Macs work as well.

    However, on a PC, Outlook does not have such labels, and neither does Yahoo or Gmail.

    As a result, the syncing process just randomly assigned labels to the various email addresses, defaulting to "work" when there is only one address.

    With VERY few exceptions, none of the labels are correct. So, it will show "work" for someone's "home" email address, and vice versa.

    This isn't that big of a deal, but I was wondering if there was a quick way to get rid of the labels. I'd rather just have all the email addresses in a list, with no labels.

    (By the way, I realize I could go through on the iPhone and fix them, but I have about 750 contacts and that would take waaaaaaay too long. If there's no easy way to fix it, I'll just live with it).

    This bugs me as well, but I'm not sure about a fix for this...

    I moved from Outlook to Outlook Exchange to Gmail. None of my contacts with multiple email accounts have labels at all. They are all just "email."

    I'm talking about on the iPhone itself, in the Contacts database.
