Yes, contacts & modifications made through linphone app are stored by Android under a raw id that is "owned" by our app, and Android removes them when the app is uninstalled.

When this mode is disabled, SIP addresses are stored in the standard SIP field of the contact, however many contact applications are only displaying one.

The only way to do it properly is for you to edit the
non_localizable_custom.xml file in res/values/ and change the value of
the "use_linphone_tag" boolean to false.

However with the future release based on the kotlin rewrite you will
be able to do it through the remote provisoning by setting
"use_linphone_tag=0" in the [app] section.
I'm having a hard time following this.

When linphone uses the system contacts database - which is perhaps
provided by davx5 - are there issues with contact deletion?

Or is it only when contacts are added *via linphone itself* into the
"linphone contacts" area?  And this area is actually a new system
contacts db, but created by linphone?

It strikes me that it would be far better to figure out a way to encode
the fields that linphone needs in the main contacts, and just do that,
so that they get synced.    Perhaps abuse the 'instant messaging'
field.   And, it would be nice if all sip clients agreed on how to do
