    To add or remove a contact from your favorites, you select or unselect the STAR next to the contacts name, but.....

    I am assuming you are referring to the "Frequently Contacted" list under favorites. To remove those entries download "Frequently Called Remover."

    I've actually never favorited anyone. Long click on the favorite that's not so favorite?

    EDIT: The previous poster is correct. Unselecting the star next to the contact's name in the phone book removes their name from the favorites list. The star is a toggle switch. Click to turn on and click to turn off.

    Frequently Called Remover app from the android market. Deletes the entire list except those numers that are marked as favorites with the star on their contact.
