    Thanks for the link. Not interested in using Gmail, and all of their other methods that involve settings within iOS appear to have been removed in iOS 11. I guess Apple was afraid they were confusing their users too much with options a toddler could understand. Bleh.

    Regards,

    I figured it out, but you need access to a mac with which to sync.
    If you have this then here's how to create a group that all have phone fields populated.

    1. on the mac run the iCal program (whatever it's called).
    2. create a new "smart group" and set the condition to phone is set.
    3. create a new group (not smart) and call it something like "phone exists"
    4. click on the new smart group
    5. select all with a right-click on the contacts
    6. drag the contacts from the smart group to the non-smart group
    7. new non-smart group will sync to your Contacts app via iCloud

    If you go to make a call then use an option within that area to select a contact (I assume there is one), since you're coming from the phone call function is it contextually restricting the contacts to those with numbers then?
