With My old phone as soon as I hit my favorites button, the phone would automatically dial the number that I set as a default. With this phone, when I hit an entry on my favorites list, it brings me to a list of numbers and I have to choose a number. HOw can I program the phone to automatically dial a favorite number? I tried setting a number as a default and it doesn't work.

which Android version? – Lie Ryan Jul 22 '12 at 19:34

in ICS, if you use the Favorites tab in the People app, then it will behave like you mentioned; however if you use the Favorites tab in the Phone app, then it will directly call the number you set as default number for the contact.
