lack of support MOBILE2 and FAX2

[ Edited ]



I've got a question concerning support of MOBILE2 and FAX2 fields on BlackBerry 5.0 devices. From the following links






it's clear that officially MOBILE2 and FAX2 are not supported on 5.0 devices. Actually they are available in a contact book and with a workaround to use ids of these fields I was able to retrieve the MOBILE2 and FAX2 numbers. The problem is with saving these fields, since the workaround no longer works like that. The fields are simply not saved. I experienced also some weird performance like a MOBILE2 number is saved under PAGER entry.


do you know any workaround to that performance?

important: could you please officially confirm that MOBILE2 and FAX2 values are not supported in any way while saving on 5.0-s?


thank you in advance
