How many additional numbers can I set in one contact?

I was playing around with a script and I was able to get only 400 of them in on a simulator. However, I would like some official response about what is the maximum, and does it vary based on the Android version.

  • We probably need to go into the source code to see it, which is off-topic for here. – SarpSTA Aug 26 '16 at 8:32
  • Yeah, thought I might get this kind of a reply. Will post in StackOverflow then. Thanks. – Nikola Aug 26 '16 at 9:08

    @SarpSTA That's nonsense. We have many questions that have been answered by examining the Android source. It doesn't matter how you get the answer, just whether it's interesting and relevant to non-developers. – Dan Hulme Aug 26 '16 at 12:15

    What issue are you trying to solve? It's pretty unlikely a single person has several hundreds of phone numbers. – Izzy Aug 26 '16 at 12:15

    @Nikola Don't worry. One random user doesn't decide what's on- and off-topic on this site: we all decide together, as a community. – Dan Hulme Aug 26 '16 at 12:15

Clarifying on your comment asking for a rough estimate, it is 499 and that seems to be not rough but pretty much fixed . Source- from SE webapps- What is the maximum number of phone numbers per one contact in Gmail?

It is relevant in the sense ultimately your contacts are going to be synced using Gmail , while the Android capacity may be more or less, it doesn't matter and by the same logic Android version shouldn't either
