So I have a very, very shiny new Nexus 4. This supports SIP, and I have added a SIP account to the telephony accounts settings page.
Unfortunately I cannot figure out how to actually dial a SIP number. How do I do this?
The telephone dialer has number buttons only, and tapping the number entry field doesn't pop up a keyboard. Rumour has it that previous versions of Android had a 'text' button somewhere on the dialer page, but that's not present in JB. There must be some way to do it...
(Note: I'm not asking how to add a SIP number to a contact. I know how to do that. I want to dial numbers that aren't on my contacts list.)
Update: after some experimenting, I have found that:
pressing the DIAL button with the field empty reloads the text field with the last number dialed, which can be a SIP number of the form sip:email@example.com. So I know the text field is capable of handling text.
trying to paste text into the field produces gibberish. For the above number, I get 7476874247835.674! (Which is what the letters on the dial pad map to. Except for : and @, which are emitted.) Dialing this number does nothing --- obviously.
