Unable to dial phone numbers

I'm getting a weird issue on my Lumia 1520. Recently every time I try to dial a number, the phone application just crashes and returns to the main home screen. I get as far as entering 3 or 4 digits and it crashes. Has anyone else had this happen? Sometimes I am able to dial the number, but more often than not, it seems to crash.

I have Windows 10 mobile OS version 10.0.14332.1001

Edit: I had the suspicion that it might be a bug when its trying to search history to match the number your entering with ones in the history, so I went into phone settings and found setting called 'Dialing contacts by name' and turned that off. The situation improved right away and was able to dial the number I was trying.
