What is Favorite Contacts?

Favorite contacts are a special set of Contacts that are marked with a Star Icon and will appear at the top of your Contacts List above all other numbers. These are usually persons you contact the most and as such they are given priority in the order of your phonebook or contacts list. I have hundreds of numbers and it can be annoying to search through the list all the time especially when 90% of the time you have some key numbers that you call allot such as your: Mother, Father, Sister, Best Friend and so on.

3.On the contact information Page go ahead and look beside the Name of the contact you see a Star. Go ahead and click the star which will turn from grey to yellow. That’s it you have just added a new Favorite contact. If you go back to contacts the person’s number or name will be at the top of the contacts list under favorites.

4.To remove a contact from favorites do the reverse. Go ahead and select a contact that’s already marked as a Favorite. On the information page for that contact click the yellow star and go back to the contacts app and they will be removed from favorites.
