Dialer that works with OS 5
Coming from years of android I just can't get the hang of the phone dialer. With almost 1000 contacts it takes forever to scroll and it doesn't default to top for search. I want a solid app that uses keypad to search or dial via T9
I have searches the app store and read many reviews and most say doesn't work with OS 5. Curious to what the pros are using or if there is a easier way to use stock dialer I am missing.

Instead of scrolling, over on the right side of the "Contacts" screen there's a vertical alphabet. Just touch the letter that is the first letter in the person's last name and you can avoid scrolling through a litany of contacts.
With a ton of contacts, I find that's the easiest way aside from telling Siri to do it.

You don't have to use the phone app at all to "search" for contacts...if you swipe over to the left, and simply search for the contact you need to call, it'll bring up everything related to that person, including the ability to place a phone call to them...

Compared to every other phone out there on the market...the iPhone is BY FAR the most effortless. You have an issue that most people have found an easy and second nature way of taking care of...truth be told, i can't think of a more effortless way to call a contact in a saturated address book than searching by name and having every type of contact option available to you instantaneously...

At the very top of the list of letters on the right side of the contacts list (it is the same in the "contacts" tab of the phone app) is a magnifying glass. Tapping the magnifying glass takes you to the top of your contact list and gives you a search field... Just start typing the name and it should take right to the contact that you are searching for,
