In the add contact dialog, I am suppose to add a button/link that will take the user to a view that shows the saved phone contacts.

I know that the Show Phone Contacts >> view pretty much sucks here for my required purpose but I have no idea what else to do with it.

    Hi Smrita, welcome to GD SE! I've given a general answer, but we really need to know what your current issue is with this design element. I personally don't see anything wrong with it. Please give us more information about what's good or bad about it, and why you want to change it. – Dom Jul 14 '14 at 12:02

    I know nothing on graphic design in general and I can't comment on that, but I know if I was using this application on my Android phone those two '>' symbols at the end would really throw me off. I would suggest removing them, but on the other hand I know nothing about graphic design... – raptortech97 Jul 15 '14 at 18:10

If you're only problem with it is that it's a bit boring, that's not a very important problem. Often boring elements aren't so boring as part of the finished design.

I personally can't see anything wrong with it; it's different enough that it stands out from the other elements, and it invites interaction thanks to those arrows.

Anyway, if you really want to add some visual interest, I suggest using some variation of the icon that used to be used for MSN Messenger and similar programs:
