Ubuntu – SIP client in Ubuntu Touch


Newb here. I am interested in using Ubuntu Phone as a SIP client.

I would really like to hookup with whoever is doing the dialer (or phone app or whatever it is called) in Ubuntu Phone so that VOIP is a built in capability. Android does this but not very well and it's a shame that 3rd party app's are required. I guess this is why I'm not interested Empathy.

I don't think I am capable of developing this but I want to get involved with a project if I can.

Can someone please direct me on this? I've been searching around and I don't know where to go.

The package source for Ubuntu Touch's system apps can be found here:

Touch/CoreApps - Ubuntu

This includes the default app, Dialer. As it stands, however, VoIP and SIP don't appear to be integrated with the Ubuntu Touch OS. As such, you would need external APIs to do the Dialer integration you mentioned.

There are two other pages that support this assertion:

Google Drive - Sources

It's really quite unfortunate, seeing that this would have given Ubuntu Touch a more competitive edge in the mobile market :(
