Review: HTC Wildfire S
Since the software phone button is available on all the home screens, getting to your phone calls is pretty easy. By default, it opens with the dial pad on the bottom half of the screen and your top favorites above it.
The phone app automatically sorts through your contacts as you type their name so you can easily jump though a large contact database quickly. You can also use the sliding tool at the bottom of the screen to sort through your favorites, groups, and so on.
As with most Android phones, if you've synced the Wildfire S with a Facebook account, the device automatically adds not only your friends' Facebook profile pictures to their contact info, it also ports over any phone numbers stored in their Facebook profile. This is helpful.

The synergy between the calling and contacts apps is very well done with Sense. I like what HTC has done to make them one tool, rather than separate functions.
The Wildfire S also includes T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling feature. It allows you to access your contact database, but isn't as pretty or seamless as the HTC phone and contacts applications are. With Wi-Fi calling, calls are placed over Wi-Fi through your home broadband network rather than T-Mobile's cellular network.
