    Hi,
    This may seem a small thing, but the new phone app is improved in many ways, yet I can't find something so simple as of which sim to use to call.

    In OP6T I used to put the number in and I had 2 green phone. I could choose either sim one or sim 2?

    Can someone pls tell me where and how to do it as its not very clear.

    Also noticed that call out is not more step required, for example if I find a contact I have to open the contact before I can call them.

    Hey, Do you mean that setting for calls. It still there Settings -> wi-fi and network -> SIM card and network -> and there down is calls, messages and data options. I choose for calls that ask always.

    Yes but on the 5t I used to be able to have two green phone icons, I could swipe between them and choose which number or sim to use.

    Ahhh so it is a A11 issue o rather lack of it. Do you happen to know how to submit bugs? Because IMHO this is a bug.

    So in response to my request, the OnePlus team has acknowledged that the option to use sim 1 or sim 2 is not there!

    Just found out an option in OP 8T to switch through sims, as soon as you dial. Have marked it with a red arrow. You have to tap it before the call is connected. It's gone if you delay tapping it.
    Hope everybody got their questions answered.

    I had a Oneplus 6t before and the option to choose SIM before calling was great. I got a OP9 now and that conform is gone. The call app in general has changed to be worse than before. Sometimes I am thinking to go back to my OP6t for many reasons. OP you have done a very poor job with OP9 series and OP Watch.

    Thanks for getting them to confirm, I am shocked they just drop a feature without replacing it and don't consider it a bug.

    Wonder how we can raise it as a bug the change sim button after dial works but is not the same and ask everytime is annoying.
