it would be useful to see real phone number in the "calling" screen. At the moment Contact name is shown, then "Dialing" message and options "speaker, dialpad, ..." but no number.

Updated (hardcodes) Could we please get a sign from Jolla, if they even think about this feature and are willing to implement it?

update: contact number still not shown in SFOS v2.1.2.3

show actual phone number along with contact name

There is also need to show phone number in Call history, like requested in question https://together.jolla.com/question/1355/display-contact-number-in-call-history/

I think this is mis-tagged as "call-incoming" - @maslovalex is describing an outgoing call from what I understand. I won't retag it myself in case I misunderstood.

@Maria you are right. When I created the question it had "calling" tag. I guess "call-incoming" came as a mistake when @Kontio added "feature-request" tag.

I also would appreciate this feature and think it's important. I have many contacts with several phone numbers (mobile, mobile international, private, business) - so only showing the name doesn't help a lot. Thanks for the input!

This request was made in December. My message is to head up Jolla developers and take this request in next release.

Since it has not been implemented in SFOS Kymijoki, one can try out voicecall-combined-patch by Ancelad from OpenRepos.

It also offers some other useful features ;-)
