I was in need of doing this exact thing today. I was forced to figure it out on my own after I couldn't find an answer online. As it turns out, it's easier than I expected. Open your bluetooth settings, find your device, and click the settings icon for that device. You should see some options for the device. Uncheck the "Phone audio" option.

The Answer to the question is Yes and I do it. I use a Raspberry Pi running RasPBX so within the house most things are SIP or DECT. My Main phone is a Gigaset DX800A which supports SIP and also DECT.

Before you place a call there is a backspace symbol to the right of the numbers that you've entered that you can use to delete any of the numbers that you've already entered. However, once you've actually rung a number and started a call, the backspace disappears and you can't delete numbers (as in your screenshot in the question). The reason for this is ...

I was able to set up a pair of tasker profiles that raises the volume to a particular level when a second call comes in from the same number within a five minute interval. It's fairly specific (it only acts if the second call is from the same number as the most recent missed call, doesn't reset the volume after the call, etc.), but it could be a starting ...

I am an Android Application developer. I had a requirement to make phone verification. In that case we had to make a telephony call to our server. But we could't achieve that as Android system does not allow us to make a phone call without users interaction.
