    I tried holding my finger on the home screen and then looked through Motorola widgets,Android Widgets, Shortcuts, folders.....

    In folders there is a folder called favorites but it is not the same.

    I want to click on the thumbnail and have it go straight to the favorites like the ones that are at the top right of the screen when you click on phone.

    Please help me! That is pretty much the only way I call people

    I guess I should clarify. It's not just My Favorites. It's the favorites and then underneath the line the most frequently contacted

    No, that is just to put a certain contact on one of your home screens. I want the original widget that is in the bottom right of the page that is to the right of the middle home screen. Across the bottom it goes.. Voice Dial/Recent calls/ Contacts/ Favorites.
    Well I accidentally dumped Favorites into the trash bin and can't get it back

    I have this same problem with the Photo Gallery, that giant red widget. I like it, but I deleted it and I cant get it back.

    Now I know what you're talking about. I can't seem to find that icon or shortcut anywhere, but if you Long Press > Folders > Favorites it will do the same thing.

    Longpress > Motorola Widgets > Photo Slideshow

    When the gallery pops up you have to select one of the pictures. The red picture it originally displays shows up as the "stock" picture even though it's not on your gallery.

    What you want to do is long hold>shortcuts>dialer, that will bring up a black screen with 3 options. Recent call list, favorites, dialer. Hit favorites and you are good to go. I had the same problem and this fixed it.
