Odd question about setting up icons.

    Just got my Nexus Prime yesterday and trying to set things up and have found one thing (or rather not found) that my Droid X had. On the Droid X I could easily set up icons on the screen for quick dial of different contacts. At work I have 4-6 numbers I call all the time and it was super handy to just have those icons there so I didn't have to fumble / search through contacts to find them each time.

    I can't seem to find how / where you can do this in the Nexus Prime. Anyone have any ideas on this?

    Sorry if this has been asked. I searched and didn't see where it had been.

    Click the application button. Click widgets at the top. Look for Direct Dial.

    It's there Paul. you actually have a few choices. there are like three different widget choices for contacts. A small square. A longer one with more info and then a full contact one.

    What i did was make a nice folder with my "favorite 6 numbers". In "widgets" i choose the contact one and then out them all together in on folder. Now i click on the folder and all 6 come up and i pick who i want to call.

    Play around with the contact widgets until you find the one thats best for you. I just noticed there are more than 3 options. they have a bunch
