AT&T S7 dialer white out with nougat update

A

AC Question

Recently received the nougat update on my S7. When using the updated dialer I can't read addresses, numbers etc because it's white font on a white background. Short of changing my entire theme is there a quick fix here?

Yes, wiping the cache partition was the first thing I did after the update finished installing. Strange, how the dialer just disappeared from my system. The only way I can make a call now is to say, "Ok, Google, dial this number". Then, the dialer seems to pop-up up.

@cohoman, are you the OP of this thread? I saw this other thread of yours here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sa...ade-nougat-where-did-phone-dialer-app-go.html (where I suggested the same thing). I mention this because the OP of this thread was talking about a different issue, where the dialer is present, but is all white font on white background. There have been a number of posts lately about problems with the S7 Nougat update, so it'd be interesting to see what different kinds of issues there are.

Ok, I figured out the issue. Before doing the nougat update I had been using the app called Package Disabler Pro and disabled several AT&T bloatware apps. Apparently when my phone did the Nougat update, something got messed up and my default dialer disappeared from the app drawer. To fix this, I started up the Package Disabler app and reenabled all apps. After that, the dialer app reappeared.

Thanks for the app suggestion
