When typing in a contact name whilst creating a new message in Messages.app, if the contact sheet for that person has more than one number (or email addresses too) it'll display a list of all numbers.

If I got it right, you are having troubles with ONE certain e-mail address. Just searching for possible reason - have you tried to 'Add to Address Book' and then assign some different name/last name?

When you select a contact, their phone number should show up towards the top. If it doesn't show a phone number, it's possible that the phone numbers didn't import. It's also possible that there could be multiple contacts for a single person. You can also try and dial a phone number of a contact in your list and see if the name shows up below it.

When you view a contact card, it "shows" you the merged info on that contact. So if one of your contacts didn't have a picture, but the Facebook ...

In my experience, Facebook will literally give each of your friends their own contact card, separate from any pre-existing contacts. You can link two separate contact cards after the fact, but in the beginning, I think any of your Google contacts who's also a Facebook friend will find themselves with two entries in Contacts, one Google and one Facebook. I'm ...

You might want to reduce the font size. Go to Settings -> Display & Brightness -> Text Size and drag the slider to the left. Unfortunately, this will change the font size in all apps that support dynamic font sizes but as far as I know, there’s no other option that would solve your problem.

Mail.app and Contacts.app have no access to the "Others" group from gmail... however, if you compose all your gmail account messages in Mail.app on iOS or OS X instead of the gmail web client, they will autofill any addresses you have previously sent to.

Mail will ask you only one time, and if you deny it should stop asking.

Leave them in contacts rather than remove, but set all their ringtones/messages sounds to a silent ringtone. There's one here linked from this page - How can I get a silent ringtone on my iPhone? on the iPhoneFAQ site. You'll still get the notifications, but no sounds.

same issue and quite discouraged by the idea to edit 390 contacts. I started the procedure suggested by m666, exporting my the contacts from iCloud. As soon as the file has been created, voilà, something triggered contacts.app that asked the confirmation to import these 390 items, synching iCloud and Contacts. I hope this will work for others...

Just to basically state an implementation of an answer I found here regarding the creation of a group within the contacts tree in your Outlook. What you should do is to create a new group "mobile", and then go into you other lists - "do a list view> and group them by mobile number" - then drag all the contacts that have mobile numbers to your new group. ...
