  One thing that has always bothered me was receiving a call from a friend that was not from the number I had stored for them, whether it was an alternate, or secondary number, and trying to add that to their existing contact card was quite a pain.

Someone call the plumber, the leaks are flooding in this morning. This time around they come in the form of OS for the unreleased BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900/9930, and the still unannounced BlackBerry Torch 9850/9860 and the BlackBerry Curve 9350/9370.
