If you have a person you have to call often, create a Contact Shortcut icon for the person right on the Home screen of your Droid smartphone. Just follow these steps:
1. Tap and hold an open space on the Home screen.
2. Select Shortcut.
3. Choose Contact. (Use Direct dial if you want the icon to just dial the phone number directly.)
4. Select the Contact you wish to add to the Home screen.
5. The shortcut icon is created.
