    Would appreciate some help please. The question has been asked, but as far as I can see from searches has not been answered.

    I have contacts in my Favorites and they appear OK in the widget.

    How do I assign the default action that occurs when I press the icon. eg. dial the mobile number, or home phone, when both numbers are recorded in the contact? I know that I can press and hold the people entry for options, but I am looking for a one push option.

    I've learned so much from this forum in the last couple of days and my phone is looking fantastic thanks to everyone's help. Thanks!!

    From memory, HTC's official answer to this is a kludge. You have to remove the person from the Favourites widget, then add them back again in order to choose the default action. One of those small and niggly 'features'.

    just got the phone and was seriously annoyed by this "feature" and played with it for what seemed like forever to figure out how to change default but I got it :D

    For anyone wondering... when at your favs, select the "3 lines" then choose the person u want to edit so it brings up their details, then hit your "menu" button and click on "more" and select "set widget action" then select which option u want as default! VOILA
