Different contact options when creating a new text message

[ Edited ]

Hi all,


On my Q10, I have the following "issue":


When I want to type a new sms message to somebody listed in my contacts, I get not only the mobile phone number linked to that contact person but also e-mail addresses, fixed number...


Is there any way I can change a setting for this so that only mobile numbers are displayed while creating a new text message (SMS)? Fixed phone number and mail addresses are just not relevant.


On the other hand, when I want to create a new e-mail, I only see the mail addresses of my contact I am sending to.


In my blackberry HUB I have following account (most probably the reason why I see other contact details while creating new text messages):






Please advise.


Many thanks in advance!


Kind regards,

I've not found a way to remove that additional contact information when composing an SMS.
