Did you figure this out at all? I'm having the same problem.  I can't seem to find a way to add multiple phone numbers to a contact.

@anitalatz Yes, you have to add multiple numbers to a contact using the phone memory not the sim option.

well I just switched to the galaxy from iphone.  I had to re-add all the numbers manually bc I didn't know how else.  When it showed me the options I added to sim.  But then the phone synced to my gmail and facebook and I have a mess of numbers and names, and also with whatsapp.

This features doesn't work for the numbers stored on the SIM. 

Open Contacts, press Menu Button, then Contacts to Display, and choose Phone. Now you can add many phone numbers to the shown list.

If you want to copy all your SIM contacts to phone, press Menu Button, Import/Export, Copy Numbers from SIM, and select Phone.
