    So I worked for VZW marketing department. I was able to convince one of my directors to try out the new windows phones (HTC 8x). He is android fan and I was very surprised to get an email from him this morning letting me know how great his new HTC 8X is and he is planning to keep the phone, However there are several basic features that are very important to him and that are missing in WP8 so I thought I get a little help and see if anyone knows a substitute. So on the Phone dialing app, there is no universal search to look up contact list or recent calls like in blackberry and droid, is there any alternative to that. Is there an app to substitute Google voice and to upload YouTube videos?
    Suggestions are welcome :)

    There's an app called rap dialer or something... Never tried it but it seems pretty popular.

    Metro talk for Google voice and metro tube for YouTube. And yes radio dialer is terrific.

    If I launch the phone app on my 810 I get the history of recent calls if I tap the search glass it will bring up search and keypad for the phone book.

    Correct. There is also the people button just to the left of the search glass (within the phone app) that brings up the people in your address book directly.

    Yes, but that is just too many steps, rap dialer works great though

    Really? When I hit the search glass it only searched the history. I WISH it would search the phone book (contacts) without having to hit "search contacts".
