    I loved being able to do this on my Bold. I can do this using Outlook-contacts on my PC, but that doesn't help me when I only have my phone & need to search for a person in a category if I can't remember the name. Is there any way to add a custom field? Does anyone know if the Classic will have this capability? Thanks in advance.

    There's a couple of ways to do this. The first is to create a group within the contacts app and fill it with whomever you wish and name it whatever you want. Option two offers a little more precision (at least for me) and that is to add a place of work or job title for certain contacts. You can do this by adding custom fields.

    See the box at the bottom? That'll let you add field
    Is there a way to categorize contacts on the Q10 so that I can search a category e.g. lawyers?-img_20141212_101903.png

    Next, choose what you want to add


    Is there a way to categorize contacts on the Q10 so that I can search a category e.g. lawyers?-img_20141212_101911.png

    Then, fine tune it by tapping the drop down menu next to the field for more options.

    Now you're good to just hit search within the contact app and type ie Lawyer and it'll give you a list of all lawyers and also contacts who are unfortunate enough to be named Lawyer.

    The other option like I said is to just open the contacts app and tap 'new group' and then populate it how you like.
