is it possible to edit the field of a contact ("home", "work", "mobile", etc.)?
I don't mean the content of the field, but the name OF THE FIELD ITSELF. I know it's not possible with the default app, so the question is: is there an app that allows you to do it?

    You can add custom fields. Is that not what you want? – rrirower Oct 23 '14 at 12:54
  • A custom field would solve this in the easiest way, I'd agree with @rrirower on that. Otherwise I guess you could install some 3rd party contacts applications and see if they allow flexibility. I've never seen the option to change the labels, just add my own ones. I'd hazard a guess that "home, mobile, work" are kept generic so that a contact is standardised to some degree across devices / databases. – RossC Oct 23 '14 at 15:06
  • I have Android 4.4.2 and I can't add custom fields. – Luke Oct 24 '14 at 9:22
