Advanced Contact Details
Shared contact details. Some contacts have the same home phone number for example. Custom details/fields. Ability to add more phone numbers, etc.
I didn't find the way to have more than 3 emails per contact
Another reason: when we associate two contacts (same family, same home number, the détails of mobiles numbers of each members goes the same(mobile1, mobile2, etc). On Symbian, E5, this was possible. Jpl
Please introduce custom fields for contacts in GDR3. To delay this feature until Windows Phone 8.1 would be too long for all to wait.
I've been using N8 since 2.5 years and this is the only irritating feature (of not able to edit contact labels) which was there in my previous E90. I update the old phone of all the contact cards and frequently refer when required.
This is a really useful feature and a necessity as well.
I wanted to replace my phone now and I've a tough choice. If I'm not going to get a windows phone, this is the only reason for taking such a decision.

I just voted on another suggestion (link below), similar to this one. Hope our votes aren't wasted.
Custom labels and unlimited phone numbers are kind of necessary. I can't imagine why this wasn't included.

Can't believe we are restricted in the number of phone numbers that can be added and more importantly that custom labels aren't permitted! Ridiculous! First saw custom labels on my Nokia 6600 and instantly utilised the feature, couldn't believe having syn'd all my contacts from Google that all custom numbers were missing and had to remember which contacts had custom labels and amend so that their primary mobile number was available to me! 6 days with Lumia 920... and want my iPhone back already!

Custom field names for contacts' details is very, very basic and necessary stuff. I couldn't believe this isn't possible. I also can't believe this has got so few votes, so I've put some in. Please, please Microsoft, sort this out.
As mentioned by others, several phone options (and addresses) would be great! Home, Work, Mobile 1, Mobile 2, Mobile 3 etc.
Whilst not a techie, I understand from a database perspective it may not be so straight forward to have editable naming fields. But, please may we have the field options so that if someone has 3 or 4 mobile numbers, we can put them all in the one contact, rather than having several contacts for the same person and in my case writing eg. Lisa - UK 1; Lisa - UK 2; Lisa - US. Same with home numbers - eg. I have a friend's UK number, her husband is working overseas, and I have to have two contacts rather than one contact 'card' with several numbers.

I really need to use custom labels on the phone numbers so I know what number belongs to what person if I have like 5 numbers under 1 contact instead of putting them all under 'work'.
Also that particular custom label needs to be shown besides the main contact name whenever I get called (or I call that subcontact) and ofcourse also in the calling history if I missed the call.
Редактирование метки поля номера была даже в Symbian, есть в Android и в IOS. Дайте эту возможность
А еще лучше было бы, если была бы возможность саму назначать названия добавлеммых в Контакты номеров, заместо "Мобильный 1", "Мобильный 2"
I desperately need custom field names. This is available on Android (and Symbian years ago). Please get it sorted
Notice that if you use the "Car" field to have a (2nd, 3rd) phone for a contact, that you can not directly access it from a WP7. If the person calls you from that number it diplays as "Caller - Car", but until that happens you can not initiate a call. Odd.
Its simple let us users have custom labels for all the details and its fixed.
This is one of the most missing features.
I expected custom labels of contact fields in WP7 phones, just as in any half-modern phone. Even my Symbian candybar from five years ago can do custom fields... This should be improved asap, Microsoft!
Yes, Microsoft still using aged outlook contact function for more than ten years. Android and IOS can customized easily. All related MS products must be updated i.e. hotmail, outlook, phone contacts. Many people have more than one no. in one category. This is one reason I do not want to buy WP7 yet
this is one thing which I find sorely missing in windows phone. Peple hib should have customizable labels and support multiple entries of a label
Ability to add contacts using vCard/Contact card option. Ability to send contact card to other phones in globally compatible format contact format.
