Welcome to Android Central
What exactly do you mean by default contact? Haven't seen that on mine
In the contacts you can select a number that will automatically be dialed when you put the phone to your ear. You "mark by default". In other words it will place a checkmark next to the number you want dialed by default. The problem is once I select this option in contacts I can't figure out how to unselected it. Hope this helps because it is driving me crazy.
