Whenever I add someone to the favorites panel on my DI it just puts them in alphabetical order...is there any way to manually arrange the order of the shortcuts? Or should I just get rid of that widget and just use shortcuts on the main screen?
Click and hold the widget for few seconds. Drag it to the "edit" button appearing on the lower left of the phone.
The phone should show you option to reorder the favorites. Select this option. You will see the list with a reordreing button to the right of each contact. Press and hold the draggable button and move contacts one by one.
What I do is put an "A" and a Space in front of the person's name I want in the first position and make the star white in their contact,
Then I put a "B" and a Space in front of the person's name I want in the second position and make the star white in their contact, etc.. this puts them in the order that I want .
Hope that helps !
