How can I edit or remove people from the favourite contacts widget on my HTC Legend?
For editing, this question should help, although it's specific to the HTC incredible. For removing, it's the same idea (select contact name, not icon) then remove them from the Favorites Group. Hope it helps.
Removing it from "favourites" or "starred in android" didn't work for me. I don't have any star either on my HTC Wildfire.
You have to find your contact in the "Phone" list (this one where you go when you want to call someone, middle bottom of the desktop). Then you touch it, wait until menu arrives and... tap "remove from favourites". Interesting that you won't find this option in "People" app, or in contact details either.
