    Use "messaging" from the app menu and place it on your home screen. Typing the name will remember the contact. Just another way to do it.

    when you start a new text message in the "to" field just start typing the name you want and it will show names with the letters you typed just touch the name and there you go. Quite handy and easy.

    If you send a lot or plan to txt this contact often you could always add a short cut direct message to that particular contact to one of your screens.
