It seems that your question is not directly connected to back-sql sepcifics.
If I got you right, you'd have just the same question with back-bdb. To
distinguish between cellular and regular phone numbers, you can:
1) store them to different attributes, eg phone and cellPhone or smth...
2) use some kind of substring matching to distinguish by prefix or smth...
I'm not shure I got your question right, is this what you asked about?
