How can I make a contact or a phone number a favorite
I'm pretty sure this is possible because I've seen several videos that reference that is has been done and how to use the favorite but I can't find anything either online or in the manuals that tell me how to do it. My wife is not comfortable using the voice commands and I'd like to create favorites for some of her frequent phone numbers. Most of the numbers are for people that have multiple numbers, i.e. cell, home, work so it seems to me that the most logical approach is to create a contact with all their information in it and then make the contact a favorite. That would allow my wife to touch a single favorite button and display the contact from which she could select the specific phone she wanted to call. If that's not possible then I'll create a favorite for each specific phone number and rename them appropriately.
I did figure out how to create an address as a favorite, Cadillac could use some help with making that more intuitive and user friendly, but that's a whole other issue.
Can anyone help me with specific instructions on how to make a favorite that is either a contact or a phone number? I've created the contact in the vehicle address book already so I know how to do that.

Here is something I posted some time ago in another thread. I think it answers your question.
"From the home screen, touch phone and then touch contacts.
To store the entire contact as a favorite, do not select a particular contact. Bring up the favorites bar and touch and hold a slot in the bar. The system asks for a contact to store. Touch the contact name in the list.
To store a phone number or address, after bringing up your contact list, select a contact. Then bring up the favorites bar and touch and hold a slot. The system asks what to store. Touch a phone number or address."
