    Here's how I did it. Long press the screen containing the destination folder and select shortcut then contact (or contact direct dial). If the folder was open, it will appear within it. If the folder was closed, press the newly added contact icon until it's selected and drag it near the folder until you see the folder open and then drop the icon. Repeat. I added a row of contacts for edit/view, a row of direct dials, and a row of contacts for text/MMS messages.

    abcOrganizer is the best thing I've found. It allows you to set "labels" for each contact from the contact screen and then you can place those labels (which act as folders) onto your home screen(s). It also works for programs/apps and bookmarks. The best thing is the labels are 'attached' to the contact so should you delete your folder (or loose data during an update or something) it's still there. And it can perform backups of the labels as well.
    You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe

    Best thing (if you're a gmail user) would be sync now then go online and manager you contacts there. Then sync and you're all set.
