    I can't seem to figure out how to put a one touch dialing icon on my desk top for the people I call all the time.

    Was a great feature of the Droid 1.

    I'm sure it's on the X too.

    Can you tell me how to do that?

    Thanks.

    I use a Quick Contacts Widget to do this.

    I do it with BetterCut and create a direct dial icon.

    i use an app called speed dialer. it has a widget that shows 4 contacts and u just tap the picture to call them. additionally, u can scroll the widget left and right to display more quick dial contacts.

    I second this...

    With bettercut you can even do a direct text icon which I use all the time.

    Put about 8 of my favorite contacts on my home screen with one touch press to dial. When you open Bettercut you get the direct dial option. I believe it defaults to Google contacts if they are on your phone.

    "Quick contacts widget" built into the phone (under motorolla widgets) works fine for this. If you have more than one action set for a contact (mobile phone, home, texting) then it will bring up a window to ask which one you want to use, but if you only have one option set up on a contact the window will come up the first time, and you can check a box that says "enable one touch dialing for this contact" which does exactly what you want. I decided two-touch dialing was good enough to avoid accidental calls, but if you like it it is available for you.

    I used Anycut to put my contacts on my home screen. Very simple to use. Just to give you one more app to try.

    long press on blank space.
    --->Moto Widget
    ------>Contact Quick Tasks
    (Only choose 1 number for the contact)
    --->Resize the block to only 1 X 1
    ------>First time you try to use it you will be asked.
    "Enable One-touch calling for this widget"

    If you do this you will end up with a 1x1 icon that if you press it will direct dial in 1 press... I really had to dig to find this. It was right on the Moto Droid 1. I now have the moto droid 2. Why would they burry this?

    Anyway, functionality IS still there.

    +1 on what edgeman4 and jns.das said. I also like that you can configure it to bring up work, cell and home numbers on the first press and then you get to choose which one to call with your second press.
