How to Use Your Favorites List on Your iPhone

In iPhone lingo, your favorites are the people you call most often. The iPhone lets you customize your own Favorites list. Then, you can simply tap the person’s name in Favorites and your iPhone calls the person.

You can set up as many favorites as you need for a person. So, for example, you may create separate favorites listings for your spouse’s office phone number and cell number.

Setting up Favorites is a breeze. When looking at one of your contacts, you may have noticed the Add to Favorites button. When you tap this button, all the phone numbers you have for that person pop up. Tap the number you want to make into a favorite and it turns up on the list.

You can rearrange the order in which your favorites are displayed. Tap Edit, and then, to the right of the person you want to move, press your finger against the symbol that looks like three short horizontal lines stacked on top of one another. Drag that symbol to the place on the list where you want your favorite contact to appear.

You can designate new favorites from within the Favorites application by tapping the + symbol at the upper-right corner of the screen. Doing so brings you back to Contacts. From there, choose the appropriate person and number. A star appears next to any contact’s number picked as a favorite.
