    I have also learned quite a few things from "Sally Star"...thank you! I've had Android for years now and been on this forum for many as well and learn so much. It pays to have a newbie on board...those that ask the questions and those that have great answers and resources! Thanks again Sally and to the OP who asked the original question.

    Disappeating favorite contacts

    Sally, thank you so much...but I fear I was not precise enough. It is not the actual widget that is disappearing, just the 10-12 contacts I had diligently added using what you described...that is, going to Contacts and hitting the green star for each.

    So, however, just to follow your logic, I did go back and look at my favorites in contacts, and lo and behold, 2 things: 1) I only had one shown though when I last did this, I had 10, AND, even this on is not showing up in the widget...

    I will say I have seen this issue raised before in various places, and have NOT seen a "fix" mentioned...

    One last thought...is it possible the favorite contacts really wants to "use" the Google contacts, or needs to be set to this? I was unpleasanrtly surprised, and helped by this forum, to find that voice commands for text, e-mail, call only work off of Google Contacts...

    Yes, it is quite possible. That's why I suggested opening the Contact app and going to the Favorite tab.

    I've had flaky things happen using the setup in the widget too.

    Try setting things up that way and see if it "sticks. "

    Btw, I looked on my pc at my contacts in gmail and the ones that are in my Favorite Contacts app have a label of Starred in Android. So that might be another way to mark them.

    I didn't mark them there but opened them up in the Contact app and clicked the star. That seems to have worked for me.

    Fix for losing contact pics on desktop

That is, I have not a clue as to what the "favorite conact" widget has to do with "stock launcher"...so far, in various threads, I am seeing "only" issues, not resolution. So how exactly does one keep Favorite Contacts from disappearing. Note: in working with Verizon/Droid help, got the obligatory "let's try a reset, sorry you will have to redo everything...", which to me says they don't have a clue, and are trying to "get rid of me"...am off to the store today to see if they want their phone back as using the Favorites is one of the biggest things I would do if it worked...
    This has happened to me twice in the past three weeks and for no reason that I can think of. The fix, if you had pics on the desktop, should be.....find a blank space on the desktop, hold down your finger on the blank space until the "add to Home screen" notice appears, chose "Widgets", page down to "Quick Widgets" and touch. The pics you had on the screen should magically reappear on your desktop. I hope this works for you....it did for me.

    I think I resolved this...and it relates to pretty much everything else in techno-land...that is, until I loaded my GOOGLE account with my contacts (vs. synching with my Outlook work account), they simply would FULL get droppe, and would have to go back in choose them all over again after fully turning the phone off. Now, since "adding" one more thing to worry (I use Hotmail for my e-mauil, and NOT going to change this over, so now have 3 places to tyr to keep in synch) about...i.e., synching with Google account, all is "good"...

    I'm Lost: Home Screen Contacts Lost

    My four home screen frequent icons disappeared. These contacts are still in my Contact App, but the shortcuts have disappeared from the home screen. I tried power off/on, but that didn't restore them (I thought it would).

    How do I restore these?

    Are you stock or rooted?
