Proposed Updated Phone Types
The phone_type option list is somewhat dated and presents options that don't always make sense to modern users. The first two options are "Phone" and "Mobile". Twenty years ago there might have been a more obvious distinction between the two, but today they are basically synonyms. We should re-label them so that it's clear that the first option means "Landline phone" and the second option means "Phone that can receive SMS". And while we're at it, let's also change their weights since mobile phones are now more common than landlines and should be presented as the first option.
Proposed Options (New Installs)
This reverses the order and relabels the first two options, while deleting the last two, as "Pager" and "Voicemail" numbers are rarely used these days (it's an option list so specialized organizations can always add them in).
|1||Mobile||Voice & SMS|
DB upgrade would update labels and weights of the first two options. Functionality will not be impacted as the machine names remain the same. The "Pager" and "Voicemail" options will be deleted only if they are not in use.
