ekiga new look & missing contact #'s ,call history

Bug #307968 reported by sintacto
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Won't Fix
ekiga (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ekiga

just got new update in jaunty and I wanted to say I realy like the new look of ekiga alot.

 i lost contact #'s but not names
 i lost call history

My only suggestions are that Ekiga would open when you start it to the desk top
and now it loads to the panel. I use human theme with auto hide so i thought it had failed to start at first then noticed a green button in the tray that did not look at all to represent a phone in anyway and just realized that the icon had been replaced.
i can understand not opening to the desktop as a preference to some but i realy like the icon to somewhat represent a phone.
some times i get disconected from networks and would be nice to still see the registerd accounts (i use two) to know if one is not on.
missed call's and voicemail notification gone aswell.

the address book no longer has my contacts # or let me click to connect ( not cool to loose contacts and call history)

good job on the look overall it gets my vote.

any suggestions on retrieving my contacts and history?
( I found the contact #'s in evolution)

Hi same for me after upgrading to jaunty from ibex:
In Ibex I was surprised to see that ekiga used Evolution's address book. Cool. So, FROM EKIGA (IBEX), I added a telephone number to a contact.

Opened evolution and saw that a number was stored somewhere.

Recently updated to jaunty and now to my surprise the contact no longer had a phone number. But in evolution it did.

Added the phone number again, and: Voilá:
-The Jaunty version of ekiga stores the phone number (VOIP URI) in Evolution's "BUSINESS PHONE NUMBER" on the Contact tab.
However, the Ibex version of ekiga stored the phone numbers in Evolution's "VIDEO CHAT" on the Personal tab.

I think for backwards compatibility the new jaunty version should definately lookup "VIDEO CHAT" URIs in addition to "BUSINESS PHONE NUMBER"
