Default Phone app in contacts

Post by wanderley » Fri Oct 21, 2016 12:56 am

I noticed that once you make a call and select Groundwire or receive a call via Groundwire the little icon chances from phone to Groundwire and an entry is added to the Social Profile but if you manually add a number to the Social Profile and select Groundwire app then the preferred calling method is not changed automatically.

I hope this CallKit limitation (I assume) changes so that it would be simple to export contacts and add a Social Profile and import it back so Groundwire is the default app

I would like to make all my contacts’ phone numbers default to Groundwire app instead of Apple’s phone app?

Hello,

I don't think there is a way to make ourselves the default dialer, CallKIT doesn't work like that.
However, you can make app specific favourites. You can make a favourite that will specifically use Groundwire for example.

And I believe we are still looking into how the Social Profile can be used here.
