Incoming Call: Display Phone Type

Hello friends,

I have an issue that I've never been able to figure out so I thought I'd come over here and ask the experts. I put multiple phone numbers in one contact (i.e. mobile, work, home, etc) and with my previous phone (HTC G2) when somebody would call me it used to show if it was mobile or work or home or whatever. Now with my new phone (Samsung Galaxy S2) it shows me the city/state instead of the phone type. It there a way to customize what I see on my incoming call screen? I don't really care about the city/state but the phone type is very important to me.

What should I do? Thanks in advance for any advice! :)
