Recent Contacts - Bring it back!

Communicator had a recent contacts option. The new Frequently Contacted in Lync does not work the same way.

 

With recent contacts, if I ever contacted somebody or someone contacted me, there name would remain

in that list for at least a few weeks, and after that period if I hadn't contacted them again, it would eventually go away.

But on the mobile the client shows up as a PSTN-number as displayname.
