    Ok, had a good search and can't find this question being asked. Also feel I must be pretty stupid asking it:

    How do you change the order of your favourite contacts in the widget?

    I'm on a HTC Hero, Android v1.5

    I want my wife at the top of the list & would like to be able to re-sort the list as I find who I communicate with most often, but it seems to just display them in the order that you make them favourites. Most recent at the top.

    I don't want to have to clear my favourites and then start again every time I wan't to change it.

    Thanks.

    Mine is actually in alphabetical order and it can not be changed.

    I have a folder with shortcuts to my most used numbers o n my home screen. 1 swish to get to the folder 1 tap to open it and 1 tap on the persons contact pic.

    Works for me......plus you can arrange the contact pics just how u want.

    I've foolishly removed my favourite contacts strip from my Home Screen, and can't seem to get it back. Any ideas guys?

    Exactly what are you trying to do or sort out.if you go in to people find tue person you want to fav. Press menu then press add looks like a person and heart. That person becomes a fav.

    On the home screen press + , HTC widget, people, then choose which fav people widget you want to use.

    Let us know what your trying to do and I/we might be able to provide more specific help.

    It wont auto re send but if it does not send, you will get a notification in the status bar.

    Add a space before her name - should go to the top of the list, aphabetically.

    Alternatively, marry an aardvark :rolleyes:
