Step 1. Go into "people" (aka contacts)
Step 2. Select a person.
Step 3. Press the menu button.
Step 4. Select "more"
Step 5. Select "set widget action"
Step 6. Select "view contact"
Now when you select a contact's image from your "favorites" widget, you will view their contact information and you are able to select the type of communication you wish. (text msg, call, email)
Let me know if this is what you were looking for.
Nice! thanks for that. that's pretty much what i was looking for. I like that after choosing text message i get a pop-up that asks if i want to use "messages" or "google voice" to text. it'd be cool if i can choose a default text option for a contact, but if not, no biggie. Thanks again.
Coming from an iPhone, I am missing taking a screen shot, something that was very simple to do on the iPhone. I also wish I could customize the LED light to blink different colors for text, emails, missed calls, etc. I don't see an option to do this. And last I can't find a way to put both my emails on the email widget so I can preview all my emails on the widget. I do love this phone though
