Bug Description

Now that conference call support has landed, dialer-app should allow users placing new calls while already on a call.

This should be done using the contact button on the live call view, which is currently disabled.

I tested multiple calls in image 291, to verify it doesn't work before landing this branch. Much to my surprise, it worked.

Dialer -> call someone.
Left-edge swipe -> contacts -> select contact -> call.
Suddenly two calls are active.

I didn't actually think it would work though, and tried to cancel the second call... and, again to my surprise, the 'hang up' button doesn't seem to work in that situation. I had to hang up using the first phone I called, wait for the Ubuntu phone to notice, and then I could make the second call end.

I think I'll wait to continue testing until I can get a third phone in the same room, which should be in a few hours.

This seems to work (tested from silo), except for one issue: After ending one call, the second call stays on hold.

If the calls are merged, it works nicely, and as long as two non-merged calls are active, I can switch between them. But after one non-merged call ends, the other one should still become active if it's not already.

To reproduce this symptom:
- Start one call.
- Tap the contacts icon and use the contacts app to start a second call.
- Hang up one of the two calls without merging them.

Expected result: The remaining call should become active as soon as the other call is done.

Actual result: The remaining call is silenced. However, you can re-activate it by hitting the '>' (play) icon.
