Your method will not work. He is having a Micromax phone and you have a Samsung. So phone.apk is different. Also it won't work by extracting and installing because it is not a normal app. It is a system app. If you try to install, there will be "application not installed " error.
I assume you have old phone.apk backup.
Go to CWM, mount /system & /sdcard.
Flash this Aroma File Manager
Use V1.80 or 1.90
This is touchscreen working file browser preferred to put /system files without problem.
Go to sdcard====>backup location====>long press phone.apk then copy====>paste in /system/app/(here).
CHANGE PERMISSIONS (VERY IMPORTANT)
Find the apk in list after pasting. Long press it (this must be done after copy-pasting)====>change permissions. Select rw-r--r-- (0644)
Looks like this
[V] [V] [ ]
[V] [ ] [ ]
[V] [ ] [ ] where "V" is tick mark.
Exit, reboot and you have working phone.apk
