Ice Cream Sandwich is all the rage right now with developers trying to extract whatever they can from the system dumps that have been recently made available. The aesthetics of Ice Cream Sandwich have sure been improved and look very slick. While the chances of the OS being ported over, or updates being released for most existing devices seem grim, ssconceptz over at XDA-Developers has released an Ice Cream Sandwich theme based dialer for the Epic 4G Touch. So if you have the ICS Launcher and icons installed on your phone, this will compliment all that very nicely.
The dialer is more of a customized app (apk) that you need to install in order to replace the existing contacts.apk found in /system/app. The file is available as a flashable zip file to be installed via a custom recovery, or a simple apk file that will have to placed or pushed to /system/app manually.
However, flashing via recovery is way easier and more likely to work without any issues.
