You can't change it because you are in the contact section.

I'm testing this and everything is showing. You are creating a profile field which will show under the avatar. You need to create a contact field to get what you want.

Hi,

To add a contact field, hit the "Contact" button (As opposed to the 1st list of General options) and create, as per MrMario's instructions above.

Yes I've tried that before I post this topic..
for examples this setting: (Profiles > Contact Fields > Add)

maybe it have something to do with the contact type?
I've tried changing the contact type to web address but it didn't show up..

Could you give me a screenshot for the setting?
so I could make a custom contact info like bb pin / ping!chat / others..?
(under my post, next to messengers etc)

Just change the contact type (Phone Number) to something different and it will work. Don't put anything in the default contact though.

No it didn't work out..
I've tried changing the contact type to web address like I've said but still..

wait, I've found out that I can't edit the value:

whenever I hit 'save' the value back to empty..

Edit:
wait I've found out I can't change the value for web address type and google talk.
I've tried by modifying the current field (ex: ICQ number to my custom one)
the icon is showed up but it delivers to ICQ (since the content type is ICQ)
can't edit the type for the current contact field tho'
