    I'm on Vodafone and android version 7.0,i have been into contacts on the orange app and also the green phone app and i have a few in there but they were already there,i click on the name what i want to add and a lot say you get a star to add but i get nothing like that.
    If i click the options i get is a small drop down under name (text/phone/details)click on detail and i get the top of the screen in a blue color and name on the left but no star anywhere in that color part,is there something i aint turned on.

    Open the contact you want to favorite. On the lower right corner of the picture, there's a star.

    When you say open the contact this is how i do this.
    I click on the green icon and got all my contacts then click on one and i get a drop down under it with phone/message/details then to open that contact i click Details but there is no star by the name or on the bottom,when i click to the one end of the contact i get to tick a box to share the contact.

    2 things,first is the only way for me to get this screen up like you have is through Details and the other is where you have a star next to the name ''ACE'' i don't have a star on any contact.
    Seen this video and about another 5 on youtube but its not 7.0 or i don't have the star by the side of the name.
    I cant just press the contact as i just get a drop down under the contact with the 3 options so i press Details but no star anywhere,tried contacts through.....on phone/google and nothing.

    Can you post a screen shot of the screen after you select the contact and hit details? Maybe use a generic name that you set up. The star should be in the lower right corner of the place where the contact photo would be, unless Vodaphone changed it.

    There's a SIM icon. Is that contact saved to SIM? You cannot favorite SIM contacts. In fact it's not ideal to save contacts to SIM anyway.

    All my contacts were saved to sim coming from iphone by an app so then i had all my contacts as when i removed my sim from the iphone i had no contacts so had to save them.
    They are through google dashboard and i went into the phone and export to phone.
    So what is my best way around this so i get the star as if i make a new contact on my phone i get the star as i tried this just,i had no option to save them to sim coming off iphone.

    You can import all the contacts to phone then delete the sim contacts.

    I don't know who moved your contacts from iPhone, but using sim just made it more complicated. All you had to do was backup your iPhone to iTunes then install Samsung SmartSwitch on your computer, and use that to restore the iTunes backup to your Galaxy.

    Hi Friends,

    First of all, The contacts have to saved to the phone.
    Go to contacts app > click on the contact you want to star > click on the little "i" icon > Edit>Phone (there will be 3 or more options on the top of the screen i.e. "Sim card", "Phone" and "Whatsapp")> groups >change it to "Starred in Android". Go back and save the changes. And you are done. Go back to your phone app and there will be 3 options on the top - "Recent", "Contacts" and "Places". Click on "contacts" and you will see all the starred contacts.

    I know its little tedious process but thats the option we have right now. Samsung should bring back the "star" in contacts in all the new versions.
    Hope this helps,
