    Yes I am. I guess my question is...does dialer one need the stock dialer to work. like skyfire will not work without the stock browser

    Wouldn't you hose your phone. Even dailer one uses..from what I seen..the dailer interface during a call.

    i tried doing this after first installing Dialer one a few months back (well actually tried hiding phone.apk by renaming it in Terminal), and it resulted in FC city. Dialer one is just an alternate dialer/contacts/recent calls interface, where phone.apk is responsible for actually making and receiving the calls. Dont do it lol

    With Samster's post, the answer appears to be a definite NO. But thought I'd add ... whenever you want to try to get rid of any stock app, the best thing to do is a nandroid backup first. That way, you can revert back if things go south.

    A lot of apps are only frontends to the stock apps. It sounds like Dialer One is one of them.
