The iPhone offers many conveniences. One of our favorites is, urm... Favorites. Specifically, Phone Favorites. Like bookmarks for web sites you visit all the time, iPhone Favorites is a list you personalize with friends and family you call often. All you have to do to dial someone in your Favorites list is tap them. Phone Favorites makes it easy to speed-dial someone.
Here's how to add people to your Phone Favorites list and how you can access Favorites fast, with only two clicks.
Add Someone To Phone Favorites
Open Contacts on your iPhone. Scroll to find the entry for someone you'd like to make a Phone Favorite and tap it. Then, tap the "Add to Favorites" button. (If there is more than one phone number for the person, choose one.) That's it. That's all it takes to add someone to your Favorites.
Display Phone Favorites
To open Phone Favorites, launch the Phone app and tap Favorites (the star in the lower-left of the screen). Tap someone in the list to call them.
Fast Access To Favorites
You can setup your iPhone so that two clicks of the Home button immediately opens Phone Favorites.
Open Settings, and tap General. Scroll down to the Home setting and tap it. You will see a list of things you can open when the Home button is double-clicked. Tap Phone Favorites. Now, when you double-click the Home button, Phone Favorites will open and you can tap someone to speed-dial them.
Arrange Your Favorites
You can order your favorites list as you like. Open Phone Favorites and tap Edit (in the upper-left corner of the screen). To the right of the person you want to move, press on the icon that looks like three short horizontal lines stacked on top of one another. Drag to move that person in the list, to where you want them to be. Tap Done to save your changes.
