Here's my workaround for now:

* Press the 'contacts' icon - not needed if this is the default view
* Click into the find box
* Start typing the contact's name
* Finally dial the number
It's a little bit of a pain, does anyone have a faster - less keystrokes - solution?
If you hold the green phone button down for an extra second, it will pull up your contact list thus eliminating the need to click on the contact icon. Don't bother navigating to the "find" field... since your left thumb is already in the lower left corner, hit the "show keyboard" icon and start typing.... searches right away.
I have my default view in the phone app to be the call log and use the holding of the green phone button as a second view.
