    Default Uninstalled the dialer app

    I thought that the dialer app was a third party one I didn't want, so I uninstalled it in settings. Whoops -- that's the stock dialer app.

    How do I get it back?

    Unfortunately, I didn't disable it, so it's not there. Is there a way to get the apk?

    I installed another dialer from GP. It's not worth factory resetting the phone at this point.

    From App Manager. I was also surprised I was able to uninstall it.

    Okay, I found the Phone app, and looks like the stock app is working. So I don't know why the shortcut stopped working after I uninstalled the dialer app nor do I know what it was. It was called KitKat Dialer, I think.

    Anyway, it's all fixed now. Thanks for you time!
