Following this advice from Companionlink I now have the mobile numbers correctly allocated to my Additional Contacts imported into Treo via companionlink from goldmine.

However SMS lookup by last name now produces all e-mail addresses not phone numbers.

Anybody using these programs that can help?

Help message back from Companionlink read:

This was a toughie, but there's a good workaround.

Let's start with an understanding of how Additional contacts are handled. Additional contacts have only a subset of fields, and many are commonly blank. To handle these, CompanionLink draws the info that is entered, then fills in the rest from the main contact record.

In addition, the two phone fields on an Additional are not soft-mapped, as the Contact record is, but instead are Hard-Mapped to "Work" and "Fax".

The workaround is to remap your phones so that all mobile numbers are "Work". To do this, go to the Palm Phone mapping screen and change your Phone 2 setting to "Work".

You will need to change your phone 1 setting to something else, maybe "Main" or "Other".

Then Sync. You will find this attaches the Mobile numbers correctly although it does label them as "Work" phones. The "Main" number is shared between both records as there is no equivalent in the Additional.

This should work for the time being. Based on your report we have entered a program modification so that we can soft-map the Additional fields. I think we will have you add the text "Mobile" or "Mob" to the end of the phone number to designate it properly.
