Some IPhone contact phone numbers don't show up in Outlook

With people having so many phone numbers in a household, I have taken to creating custom lables in my Contacts, such as He and She to differentiate husband and wife. However they do not show up in Outlook 2007 with I sync. Is there a solution for this. Alternatively is there a table to cross reference the lables in the IPhone to Outlook?

Only the standard Outlook Phone Number fields will sync to an iPhone and not all of them will sync.

How are you creating custom labels on the iPhone?

I create custom labels by going to edit a contact tap on the label (i.e. Home). at the bottom of the list presented to choose a new label is the choice "custom label". Once you creat a custom label it is available to select for other contacts. So I have created "He" and "She" as custom labels.

Please have a read of the following link:

You are not going to be able to sync Custom Fields / Custom Labels.  The fields that should sync happily are listed - fields other than those listed that sync are not going to make it to the iPhone.
