    Upon clicking a contact for the first time it comes up with a default action, Text, Contact Card or Call, ive went through all the menus and cant figure out how to change that afterwards. Any ideas!?

    Go to People and choose Favorites at the bottom. Long press the name of the contact you want to change, and select "Change Default Action" from the popup.

    Go to the actual People application. Make sure the list you are viewing is Favorites. Then you should be able to long press on a contact to change the setting.

    This assumes you're on 1.5. If you're on 2.1 then I have no idea. I'd assume it's the same, but I'm waiting for the OTA.

    Mine is just allowing me to add groups in the favorites widget. It is actually allowing me to add any group I want. I have one for work and one for friends. The default action wasn't applied until I chose something the first time. Then it defaulted to whatever action that was. Typically calling a cell, home or work number. This is of course in 2.1. The only way you may be able to change the default is to remove the contact from your favorites and then re-add them.

    Figured it out for 2.1, well kind of. I was on the recent call log, and i did some sort of figure swipe movement and 3 icons came up on the bottom to change the default, i cant figure out what i did though,

    Anyone know how to remove a contact from favorites? I called this radio station a shitload of times because I was trying to win something and now it's stuck at the top of my list, lol.

    Go into people, select favorites (if using 1.5) or groups (if using 2.1) and hit the menu button. There should be an option to remove or delete them from that group/list.

    Realized they weren't in my favorites, just in my frequently called people list.
