Does anyone know how to increase the number of email fields in a record in Contacts, I have people in my Contacts with more than three email addresses but I can only add three as a maximum, can this be increased?

    Yes, you can. Tap edit and in the e-mail section, type the new e-mail in the empty field.

    I have 4 e-mail myself.

    I don't see a limit - I have 7 email addresses for one contact, and I can add more. When you open the contcat to edit it, at the bottom of the list of email fields is a blank field with "other" as the default. Enter a new email address there and choose the type (home, work etc) from the label list

    Do a reset (Hold Sleep/Wake and Home buttons about 10 secs or more till Apple logo appears)

    Note: You will not lose any data.

    Don't know where the problem is. I tried out a few test contacts and I went up to eight e-mail addresses.

    What Address book do you use on computer?

    Are you using Google Sync? If so Google Sync has a three email address limit.

     

    Limited Contact Information. The iOS device can synchronize up to 3 email addresses. Phone number synchronization is limited to 2 Home numbers, 1 Home Fax, 1 Mobile, 1 Pager, 3 Work (one will be labeled 'Company Main') and one Work Fax number.
