I'm not sure if this is a Signal/Libresignal/Signal for Jolla or a Jolla Problem... I can add numbers to my contacts and chat with people, but they don't appear in my list automatically. In Signal-Desktop it works fine.

And - Voicemessages aren't working - Jolla or LibreSignal Problem... Answered this myself

btw: If someone needs help setting up Signal-Desktop, click

Thank you MoritzJT for your answer, I can see my whole Contactlist with this Option in Signal now. The thing is, I only want to see users who use Signal - can this be done somehow? Signal-Desktop only shows Signalusers

I wish I found a way. For now I'm stuck with the same issue...

well, this still doesn't answer if this is a signal problem in general, or a libresignal or a jolla problem - does it? A friend of mine said, his signal-contacts just appeared in main view

Well in my main view lists only open chats. So if I don't have a chat open for each contact, I still have to search for them in the new message view.

I can't help you here - sorry. I have no clue

a friend of mine has the same settings. No SMS/MMS but the contacts simply appear in his main view. So this problem persists and we can't say if it's a Jolla or LibreSignal problem. Would you please convert your answer to a comment?

The solution is to head to the settings for signal inside the app, hit the first item SMS / MMS and make sure the first item is ticked as activated. That's sadly how the app works. Without this it won't ask for your contacts. Sending SMS still cannot be done from inside the app so it will only be used for Signal messages as Alien Dalvik doesn't allow for SMS handling for now.
