    I just bought a Samsung Galaxy S5, set it up with no problems, but I cant find the Contacts favorites, in the Contacts Application the tab is missing (only Keypad, Logs and Contacts). Also when viewing a Contact, the Favorite Star is missing, only the Edit pencil appears.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks in advance

    I have the same problem. I noticed the star is missing only for contacts that are saved on the SIM. A contact that is saved on the device did have the star. No sure why that is, but now I have to figure out how to transfer them all off the sim card.

    Well done. That sounds like a solution.

    That's correct. Contacts saved on the SIM card won't show a "Favorites" star, so if other contacts do have stars and the one in question doesn't, that is the reason. Can't tell you if there's a way to move them, but deleting them and reentering them as new Samsung contacts will give you the star on the new form for that contact.
