Hello @tankshop -
Unless I'm misunderstanding, both of these options are available actually! When you first dial a contact, it will prompt you for which number you want to use. On that same prompt you have the option to choose Mark As Default or Just Once. If you choose the second option, it will continue prompt the same question the next time you dial the same contact.
However, if you have chosen the Mark As Default option, you can change it any time. Go to your contacts list and find the contact. Next, choose the Edit option. Just below the phone number is a Default Line option. here you can switch between the available lines on your device.
I hope that helps!
Yes with existing contacts, I have a choice of which number the call is
from. There is no default dialer number in the contact info.
If I add a new contact or edit an existing contact, the default dialer
field must be filled with one of my Multiline numbers. There is no blank
option. When I make a call from that contact, the dialing starts
immediately using the now stored default.
Thank you again! I do see how it would be useful to make the choice before the call (like you can with text messages on a new thread), and I do better understand now with not being forced to choose one for a new contact or when editing a contact. That's definitely feedback I will get passed along!
Thanks for the suggestion! I've passed this along to our team who works with Samsung as something to look at in a future build. Thanks for trying this out and explaining what you'd like to see happen.
