Since upgrading to iOS 6 my iPhone 4S no longer seems to default to the mobile number of a contact for text messages. I have found after the fact that people haven't received text messages because I inadvertently texted their business line or their home line.


Is there a way to set the default number for text messages for contact?  My iPhone syncs with Microsoft Outlook on a PC.

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.0.1, Email. Attachments. Verizon Outlook

    Are you sure this problem didn't also exist before iOS6? I am experiencing the same annoyance as you (i.e. texting in a rush and accidentally selecting a number that isn't text-compatible) but I don't recall a time where this problem didn't exist...?


    It seems like a no-brainer feature for users to be able to set a default SMS contact considering that when there are multiple numbers, usually only one of them is a mobile and the others are either home or work....
