    Hello,
    A friend of mine has the HTC Incredible and asked me, since I have the Eris and they are pretty similar, how to change the default action in Favorite people. When he set up his wife as a favorite, he accidentally chose to "send text" as the default action. He wants to change it to dial her cell number. I read the instructions for my Eris on how to do this.

    It tells me "To change the default communication method for a favorite contact, press and hold the contact, and then tap Change default action."

    When I do this, I do not get an option to change default action. Same for him.

    Anyone have any idea what I/we are doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance......

    John.

    On my Eris, I had to very carefully tap the text under the icon in order to change actions.

    Tapping the text under the icon does nothing but view the contact info. Tapping the icon itself will allow me to change the default action but only for some and not others. WTF????

    Go into your People app, edit the person to remove them from your favorites, then add them back in. Go to favorites and select them, now you'll get the option of what to do, call, text, email for the default. Reset it to what you want.
