    What ROM did you flash? I have to assume it wasn't the stock Touchwiz ROM as the dialer and contacts app didn't change.

    That is your recovery. Can you link the ROM you downloaded and flashed?

    No problem. Go to menu > settings > about phone, scroll down and tell us what it says under Build version.

    Okay. That is a custom ROM and the developer themed the dialer and contacts app. Getting them back to stock would require pulling contacts.apk and phone.apk from a stock ICS Touchwiz ROM, copying them over to /system/app using a root based file explorer then fixing permissions. Its fairly easy but not if you're inexperienced and never done it before. I'm mobile right now so I can't go into more detail sorry. I can help tomorrow morning of someone hasn't gotten to it already.

    Oh, in the meantime, you may want to try Go Contacts EX from the Play Store. You may like it better than stock.

    Thanks I will look at that app. It I would rather take it from touchwiz if you Can Guide me through that. I have some knowledge on how these phones work with root etc. But I'm not great with understanding kernels,Roms etc.

    Thanks for all the help
