On my Facebook profile, I accidentally put my mobile number in the section for my home number.

mobile number in the section for my home number

When I try to move it to the mobile section I get an error: "This phone number already exists in your account."

How can I delete the home number, or move it to the mobile section?

You do it in two steps:

  • Step one: delete it from the Other Phones section and click Save.
  • Step two: add it to the Mobile Phones section and click Save.

The thing is to save the edit between deleting it from one section and adding it to another one.

(I just tested it and it works.)
