    I'm trying to add the "Direct Dial"shortcut onto my front page. I'm following all instructions from the manual but when I actually click on the shortcut it simply opens but doesn't go to my main page. Any suggestions as to where I'm going wrong?

    Welcome to Android Forums, Bloggy!

    What you do is long-press anywhere on a blank area of a home screen. When the menu pops up you select shortcuts>direct dial and then you should see your contacts list by phone number. Chose the one number you want a a direct dial shortcut. It will create the icon using the contact picture and put it where your finger originally touched. You can then just tap it to dial the number directly.
