Question Seeking Phone Dialer (with GUI)

I'm looking for a phone dialer with a GUI. This app would use my external modem to dial the person I select (from a list). I would then pick up the (real) phone if they answer.

I use Evolution for mail and it has a Contacts list, but I don't see an option for dialing.
I can get it to work with kppp, but that's really an obtuse way of achieving something that should be very simple.

Does anyone know of a nice, simple, easy-to-use phone dialer with a built-in contacts list?

Thanks in advance ...

wxdialer is such a program, but it's in beta and only holds 7 numbers for now and doesn't have a contact list. Sorry, I don't know of any others
