That's what I figured but there was no option in my contacts app to access the dialer. If I didn't dial a contact, there was no other option...weird. I was trying to avoid a reset just for that so that's why I went to apkmirror. I'm pretty sure contacts had the dial option when I got the phone and I did install the Google dialer because I like it more but I can't see why that would affect the Contacts dialer. BTW, I did uninstall the Google dialer to check if that was disabling it somehow.
EDIT: What version of Contacts do you have? This is turning into one big mystery that has me puzzled.
Mine is 22.214.171.124
The dialer part is just a small hovering circle icon with the number pad image on it at the lower right side of each part of the contacts app
You just press that and the dialler slides up, there is no actual dedicated tab for it
My guess is that the contacts app was no longer set as default for dialler because of the Google one
All I have is the plus for adding a contact. It is still the default phone app also. I guess for now I'll leave the Samsung phone app installed and use that. Thanks
EDIT: My version of contacts is 3.8.01.20 and that has to be what came on my phone. I tried to install the version you have but it wouldn't install over the system version I already have.
Yea since Oreo you can no longer manually update system apps
There are 3 "phone" apps too if you enable "Show system apps" in Settings > Apps, one is the contacts app for some reason now called phone, and the other two are probably needed for the dialler I would assume
