    So, since the new GB update the thing that I hate the most is the favorites tab. That is how I made 95% of my calls. NOw it doesnt actually do anything. It only has three contacts under Most Likely, only one of which I actually call. How do I get contacts in the bottom area marked Favorites??

    Anybody figured this out yet?

    Thanks
    Steve

    If you go to the contact that you want to add and hold down on a couple of seconds there should be a menu that pops up and there will be a option that says add to favorite

    Cool. That helps a lot. Wish it would have stayed the same as Froyo. That way top calls were always first...

    Either way, thanks!

    Are you clicking on the star in the contact that adds them to the favorites list?

    agreed..... some things seemed a bit better before (battery status is a joke now, too)

    wow so much hate.
    i dont even remember that option before...i marked my top 15 or so FAVS about a year ago when i got my original Droid....then they carried over when i got my DX by simply signing in. and now i have the 3 most recent contacts up there as well.

    also battery life increased for me.

    Sounding to me like Gingerbread is all graphic fluff and little improvement. I like the phone dialer Favorites in Froyo. May just stick with it.
