Default I deleted my favorites screen...how do I get it back?

The first screen to the right from the main screen is where favorite contacts go. I was trying to figure out how to delete one of those contacts from my favorites and I sent the whole screen into the remove box and deleted it (I've since figured out how to remove a singe contact). How do I get that screen back?

Edit: This is an Eris, by the way.

Hit the little plus sign and then select HTC widgets and choose people. You can then select the full screen widget or the half screen widget.

I dont use the Fav Widget ... so this is a total guess ... try long pressing the contact, see if it gives you any options

Does anyone know how to do this on the HTC Droid Incredible??? When you got to People and then to Favorites and long press a contact, the only options are:
- Call Mobile
- Edit Contact
- Delete Contact
- Send contact as vCard

I don't see the "default action" inside the edit contact menu.

My guess would be to edit the contact and in there you should be able to select which action would be default.
