Angry Replacing HTC sense dialer with standard dialer

I used to have a normail Android phone with the standard dialer app, and I liked it much better. Now I got a droid incredible, and I don't like the dialer. Not to mention it doesn't have favorites! (the standard dialer app has favorites that automatically gets populated based on who you call)

Is there a way to replace the HTC sense dialer with the standard dialer app? Do I need to root the phone or something?

On a related note, why are android phone manufacturers so stupid?

You could try one of these ...

Dialer One - Android app on AppBrain

Does it go to the standard dialer if you use Launcher Pro?

I tried the free version of Launcher Pro, and no, it still goes to the HTC dialer

It has a favorites widget you can put on a homescreen. Also when you hit phone it gives you a list of most recent calls which would/should be your most contacted people "based on who you call".

I use Takephone and found it superior to the Android dialer.
