At one point I remember making shortcuts for text messaging people on my home screen(contacts).

 

How do you do this? For the life of me I couldn't find out how to do this again? 

 

I believe I went into the edge feature and from there I didnt - Could someone suggest some workflow to get this done. 

 

Thanks again.

That is False. This feature is not gone- I have been doing my own due diligence and I found out that doing the work on your own really pays off.

 

Process is here! 

 

Step 1:  Hold your finger down on Home Screen for two seconds. ( an exposé screen appears where it shows all windows that you set for your apps as well as MYBixby window.)

 

Below you will see four selectable options. 

-Wallpapers 

-Themes 

-Widgets 

-Home & Screen Settings 

 

Step 2: Tap on the Widgets option 

 

Step 3: You Will see many Widget options! Make your way to the Contacts Widget. ( At this time in order to get to Direct Message Option you will need to Hold your Finger on the Contacts widget for two seconds  in order for it to Open the options which are (at this time  Contact, Direct Dial, Direct Message).

 

Step 4: Select Direct Message and it will bring you to your contacts- Once your contact is selected it will place that contact on your home screen allowing you to place it in a folder of many similar contacts of importance, leave it on your home screen, or have even place it inside of your edge bar. 

 

***If you are unclear respond here and I'll do my best to be respond and be clearer***

 

Have a Great day guys- Hope this helps.

Trying to be more active in here. I will be posting more. 

 

I feel adding to this forum helps me grasp the ridiculous matrix of possibilities within this phone. 

 

Best.

The direct txt option does not show in the widget any more. It only offers 2 choices. Now.

Any other ideas?

Is there any way of copying my "full model number, baseband version, android version, and service provide" for you without manually writing it all down?  Thx.
