    no, but you can add a phone number to your contacts (a speed dial kinda thing)... it's a webclip, that will dial a number..

    looks like it will be addressed in firmware 2.0 based on some pics somebody has since removed from this site

    Could you post an idiots guide please (or a link)?

    Is your phone jailbroken? I'm using an app called SpringDial which allows me to add contacts (with Address Book images as their icons) to the Springboard. I have a page just for "speed dials."

    (I did notice, however, that it didn't work right the first time I downloaded it. It would hang just after clicking an icon. This has something to do with a conflict with Summerboard. Somehow, though, I got it to work on my second install. I love it.)

    I found it easier to assign the HOME button to the Phone favorites. Then I just double click and I'm at my favs screen which allows me to speed dial sort off.

    I suppose putting a "webclip" (per 2nd poster??), or using a 3rd party apps saves me from pressing the HOME button twice.
