    Can somebody tell me what this option does when you add a new contact? You can either add their number normally or under "iPhone" option?

    if the contact has an iPhone.. choose iPhone so you know you can iMessage & facetime


    actually I am not sure if it matters.... All of my contacts show the facetime button... so maybe its just to tell you that the iPhone specific features will work

    I wouldn't worry with it too much, UNLESS it happens to show in GMail, too (if you use a GMail account)...

    yeah, i believe its for your own personal info. I don't have iPhone selected for anyone in my phonebook, and they all give me the option to facetime, and the iphone contacts automatically imessage.

    I wondered, too. But iMessage picks up if the other phone number.email is associated with an iOS 5 device, so this was odd to me.

    I'm gonna guess (jokingly) It's so you know which people on your contact list is as cool as you *rolls eyes*

    The only thing I have noticed is incoming calls ... With iPhone moniker in contacts you get a full screen pic of who is calling and with anything else it's a thumbnail ... I am pretty sure of this, but maybe not lol

    I don't think so. I get full screen pics no matter who calls me.

    Could have changed for iOS 5 ... I am pretty damn sure it was that way previously

    If you take a full screen shot with your iPhone and save it as your caller ID photo, it will show full screen when someone calls. I still have old contact photos transferred over from my BlackBerry address book and those are thumbnail-sized when those people call.

    If a contact has an iPhone, it doesn't matter if you have their # listed under "iPhone" or "mobile" since iMessage and FaceTime will work either way. Probably just an nice feature for those who have more than one cell phone (some people have BlackBerry for work use and and an iPhone for personal use) and this way you can quickly choose which number you want to call or text.
