favourite contacts widget

In S60, i loved the favourite contacts widget and the way the 'add' and 'remove' buttons would auto shift themselves to the left to hide themselves when not being used.

Can anyone advise if this feature is on Symbian 3? Because i cannot find it. I can have my row of contacts showing with 'add' and 'remove' in the middle of the widget and it stays there!

This one also stumped me, but it's really easy - just drag your finger across the Favorite Contacts widget to reposition the contacts. You're limited to a maximum of four contacts for the widget though.

thanks but i was hoping for a real fix rather than having to accommodate and compromise Symbian, like we have been for decades..

Well, the real fix would be to have each widget follow the same UI conventions for settings, but the real issue with touch UI's is that each program has its own vocabulary of actions that need to be discovered by the user. Menus are more structured but nowhere near as sexy
