Trick 63: Set Priorities in How You Want to Communicate With Your Contacts
You can now set your preferred communication method for each of your contacts by different categories such as call, message, or mail. You may prefer to stick to email for one person, while being open to any other ways of communication with another person. To set the priority, perform the following steps:
- Tap the Phone app, and then tap Favorites in the bottom menu bar.
- Tap the + icon in the top let corner.
- Add a contact by tapping it.
- Choose between Message, Call, Video, or Mail. To locate a different email or phone number if there is more than one, tap the down arrow to the right of the contact. Your contact displays in your Favorites list.
