Under the same name? Or under what name?

How will the phone know whether it is a primary number or not? How
will it appear in the phone?

You are talking about some kind of the synchronization? IMHO libgnokii
shouldn't care about it at all. But...
As far as I understand this is some kind of a new behaviour. I'm
afraid that retrieving all the entries every time is completly
unefficient. Maybe there's some kind of link between these entries?
Does the phone really show it under one name? How fast is browsing the
phonebook (large one)?

take care,
