It seems to me that the messages app learns your preferences pretty well. So, for example, if a specific contact has home, fax, work, and mobile numbers but you only use the mobile number to text, then the others will fairly quickly drop way down the list so the next time you text that contact, they won't be in your way.

Thank you very much. I am hoping that this is the case.

This is not working on the iPhone 5 with IOS 6. I have sent text messages many times to people and so have other users I have in my orginization and the mobile number is not moving to the top and the others are not moving down.

I never had this problem before and now I am being prompted to send to home tel numbers - I have missed a few and have been charged to send. This makes no sense - OBVIOUSLY the preference is to text to a MOBILE number, as designated in the contact.
Come on - this is BASIC STUFF. This is beneath Apple to not address it, and address it immediately.

This problem has been bugging me for a long time. I can't tell you how many times I have sent a message to a land based phone by mistake. As far as the message app learning, that's a bunch of hooey. This was a big step backward for the IOS team when they made the messaging app show any number other than a mobile number. Or at least give the user the option to show only mobile numbers. Come on guys and gals, let get this fixed!

Has anyone figured out how to ONLY show Mobile numbers when using the iPhone Text App? I am seeing email's, home numbers, work numbers, and Fax numbers. There is no reason for that. I can kind of understand Email's but HOME WORK & FAX should NOT show up. This is basic stuff here that should be done by Apple so I am very surprised it's not very simple to apply this setting.
I am looking for help PLEASE!!!

Whether or not it's "basic" stuff is a matter of opinion. Regarless, it's not a feature of the iPhone at this time.
