You can add shortcuts to the items you use most right on the Home screen; this saves you from hunting through menus and apps for what you want. Consider adding the following items as shortcuts:
Contacts that you frequently call or text
Telephone numbers from contacts that you can tap and call
Text addresses that allow you to tap and text
Directions to a favorite place
Folders where you’ve stored Microsoft Office files
To add shortcuts, follow these steps:
From the Home screen, tap the Menu button.
Tap the Add button.
Tap the Shortcuts selection you want.
You can add shortcuts until the seven pages of your extended Home screen are full.
