    I am (and have been) using Google sync for my Gmail, Contacts & Calendar since day 1 of my iPhone life. I've always been running 3.0+ too. I've been adding Google Voice phone numbers for many of my contacts and have noticed something different.

    I no longer get the option to create a "Custom Label" for any phone number (existing or new). I have included a screen print of my options. This is really frustrating and I am confusing myself now on which phone number is what.

    I have spoken with 2 other TiPb members who also use Gmail and they are not experiencing the same problem. I have even tried apps like Fast Contacts, ABC Contacts, etc. and the problem still exists.

    Here is the link I was reading from Google, but it doesn't really solve my problem: iPhone 3.0 & Sync issues: Contacts missing some data when loaded onto the phone - Google Mobile Help

    Anyone else experiencing this? Or does anyone know of a solution? Thanks in advance!

    PS: Here are 2 images of label options. 1st is what I should be seeing. 2nd is what my iPhone gives me.

    I don't know what to tell you. I think the only option would be to try a restore. There actually is a very good chance no one else has had this problem... I've never heard of this happening.

    I see in your sig that you're jailbroken. This very well may be playing a part.

    Been there, done that. Didn't help. But you could have figured that out had you actually looked at the link I posted in my question. . That's why I turned to TiPb for further assistance. Not that I'm lazy. But thanks for your "help"

    Same problem. Just switched to Office 2013 and do NOT use Icloud to synch. Skynch through Outlook, whatever that is called.
