    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

    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.
