    No there isn't an icon on extreme right in phone book. Great disadvantage in 8.1 :(

    Sadly, I don't think MS developers are old enough to know what a phonebook is. The most ill-designed core app for Windows 10 mobile is Phone/People. Almost no phone customizations are possible. Other than unintentionally firing up Cortana (NO, you cannot do anything for me now!), few things are easier than making an unintentional call by bumping/tapping something in the Phone/People app. The inability to simply open a dialer (with no extra info! No call history! Just a dialer!), dial and voila a phone call is made seems as incomprehensible to the designers as is the idea of the presence of H20 on Mars is to my dogs. Change the term from "Smart Phone" to "Confused Phone, Cool Handheld Computer".

    I have a Nokia Lumia and I was going crazy with having to hang up quickly when I tapped a name to bring up contact info and it automatically satrted calling them. A very helpful woman at MSN patiently explained that I needed to swipe my menu page right to left and in the alphabetical AP columns find People and open that link and it will be an actual address book rather than a call page and I can access all the data and change or add whatever I want without any fear of it dialing. Hope that helps!
