I bought a macbook pro and I am transferring piece by piece all my data and app from my old pb g4.
My contacts in address book are ok and I already synced with my iPhone.
Now I am cleanig my data in address book (the one on the mac) and in all contacts when I am modifying data I don't find the green plus sign on the left side of fields that can be multiple (phone numbers, address, email). So if I want to add more than one number I don't know how I can manage this issue. Worse: often If I have more fields (i.e. for phone numbers "home", "work", "mobile") and they are empty, the last one has only the minus sign in red: if I delete the empty fields, I have only one field and no green plus sign appears.
What can I do? The only way I thoght possible (but what a terrible work to do!) should be to create new contacts and copy data from old ones ... Can you imagine how many hours work?!?

    I am not sure I understood but what you describe seems the way it should be: you have the plus icon only on the last field of each "field family", i.e. phones, email, people, addresses if it's not empty.

    You can change the label for each field in a family, I mean, a phone can be labeled as office, home, mobile, fax and whatever by clicking on the label and choosing as you need.

    If you have at least an empty field in a family you don't have the plus icon, that appears as soon as you fill that field in.

    As said before, possibly I didn't understood the issue: possibly clarify it more, so I try to reproduce it!

    Have an happy weekend!
