I see no obvious way to change the default action of a contact that's added to the Favorites widget. I have to remove that contact from the Favorites group, and re-add that contact (which then prompts me for the default action, like View Contact, or Send Mail). Is there an easier way?

Finally tried this, it's quicker to do the following:

  1. Select the contact name from the Favorites widget (the icon performs the action, the name shows you their details).
  2. Select Menu > More.
  3. Select Set widget action.
  4. Select call, text, etc.
