    For what reason?

    There is no "default" number in a contact. If a Contact has multiple numbers you have to choose the one you want to call.

    Hi Every Question is asked for a reason, here is the answer:


    When opening your contacts whichever number displayed on top the contacts number list is the default one.

    So do a few copy and paste tricks and change the number type and there you go!


    (I took me a while to figure this one out, please leave helpful replies in forums, a lot of third party app's make use of the default number and car kits)
