    I keep adding my favorite contacts to the HTC widget page, and they randomly disappear. Once in awhile they come back, but for the most part I have to keep adding them. Anybody else have this / or know why it's happening?

    thanks,

    Mark

    I gave up on that widget and created shortcuts to each of my most used favorites. These seem to survive when I sync and easier to use / change.

    When you say favorites I am assuming you mean favorite contacts? It's happening to me too!!

    I have been told by Verison (after they replaces my phone and it happened on the new phone) that it may be the third party program I am syncing with...what contact/calendar program are you syncing with?

    Hated that widget. It seemed to have a mind of its own. I got my Eris on 12/24, and had removed that widget by 12/28.

    disappearing contacts

    Funny my contacts disappear ONLY in the favorites widget!! But the pictures I apply dissappear from the contacts themselves, while the contacts stay intact...I can watch them disappear!! If anybody has a clue i would appreciate it!!

    Are you logged into FaceBook on your phone?
    I took the time to take pictures of key contacts to make it easier for my young boys to call relatives in case of an emergency. Then, since I was logged into FB, some of the custom contact picture were replaced with the individual's FB profile picture. Frustrating!

    Now the picture's seem to hold. I don't use FB on my phone and quit using the favorite's widget. *(Shortcuts to call are much more reliable.)

    I had that experience too - with Facebook - those pictures replacing the ones i was trying to place in my contacts...annoying to say the least. I am loath to even set up Facebook as the contacts somehow integrated themselves with my regular contacts and i had to delete them all and start over.

    I did find a great program that allows you to selectively delete (including delete ALL) contacts - called Contact Remover.

    Meantime, bummer! I get a phone call and instead of seeing the caller's picture, i see the android logo.
