Question [Q] Using SIP client for pre-defined contacts

Hey guys,

I'm on (nearly) latest nightly build. I want to use the SIP client built in the dialer to make VOIP calls. This works totally fine but I want to call just a few numers/contacts via internet call and the others over regular cell network. When I select the option "Use internet calls... only for internet calls" (or sth similar) I never found an option how to do that call no matter if I dial the number directly or if I want to call a contact. The other option would be to choose between regular and internet call before I make the call but that started to get annoying

Does anybody have a clue? Help is much appreciated, thanks in advance

Best, Bootsy

Alright, I found a solution in case anybody is interested:

In order to call a specific number always via SIP you have to add a GOOGLE-contact (Exchange contact does not work since it does not have the appropriate field) and simply add the field "internet call" where you put the phone number. If your dialer is set to use SIP only for internet calls all outgoing calls use cellular network except of the numbers which are stored as "internet calls".
