I was just messing with my phone (trying to figure out something that’s still eluding me) but I reverted back to Windows Default instead of Sense as my UI. And while I was looking through the default Windows contacts pages (which are actually nice in their latest versions) I noticed that my wife’s contact information had HTC Favorite as a category she was a member of. I know I didn’t do that myself so I figured that was how HTC was restoring my contacts when I flashed. I went to my PC, opened Outlook, changed another contact to add HTC Favorite as a category, went to Sense and sure enough there was a new favorite person added to my list. Oddly, in Sense the ‘category’ is not a visible item to look at.

So if you want to control your favorite people in TF3D just add a category.


  1. Nikhil oted here (http://www.fuzemobility.com/tip-add-and-control-sense-fav-people-from-outlook/#comments) that it doesn’t work on Goog. Are you guys using Exchange to sync? Just try to go to a contact that you have added as a favorite and look at their contact information and see what the category is set to.
    Also, if you flash do your favorites auto-restore? On Exchange they do and it did work for me on 2.1 as well. I never knew what was happening (and figured it was something on the PC being trasnferred over) but this makes a lot more sense.

  2. access to Categories is also available in the MyPhone website if you use it to sync & store your phone contaacts. I noticed it about a month ago when Editing a contacts info on the website. don’t remeber which versions of Sense it works with or if it’s a Registry setting or not. I’ve seen them automatically apear after synching with Energy Roms, but not so much with the latest RRE Tilt2 Roms
