Hi guys

 

This is doing my head in:

I would like to know how to delete a phone number in an existing contact.

Mousing over one of the numbers in this contact allows clicking the pencil icon to edit, but not for the other two numbers.

This has stumped a few in other forums, and I dont want to go and edit a skype database...

 

Many thanks!

sorry, but you cannot edit or delete the phone numbers that a contact has included in their own profile, only the ones that you have added to this contact on your system

Neil

How about if I added the number to an existing contact now they dropped that number. This is a very poor interface, if you add something you should be able to delete it.

Re: Deleting a phone number from my contacts list.  What if they died and I want to eliminate the number?  or if it is a number i added with no name and i don't remember who it is, i want to delete this number.

The original topic was Deleting a phone number within a skype contact, which is a bit different from just Deleting a phone number from my contacts list.  The process of deleting a phone number from your contact list is the same as deleting a usual contact.  You can just right-click then select Remove from Contacts.
