One of the motivations of developing Blink was to get rid of the dialpad in a software SIP client.


> P.S. I never understood why people prefer convoluted solutions over the plain and simple ones. I mean when I have a full keyboard at my disposal, why would I prefer a virtual one that mimics one from device that uses a limited keyboard because of size/price constrains? I guess habits die hard. To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if people would buy USB devices that mimic old phones with their limited keyboards just to place a phone call from a software client using the interface they got used to...

> Why do you claim a popup DTMF dialpad to be a "convoluted solution"?  Why do you claim that Blink's solution is "plain and simple"?  Those are both subjective assessments and, I think, matter of perception. If recent queries on the mailing list are any indication, novice users don't necessarily share your opinion. Also, you should realize that most novice users probably don't subscribe to this mailing list, so I would argue that a lot more people are put off by the lack of a DTMF dialpad than you might think.
> Sorry if this is a controversial subject: I'm not trying to upset anybody, just trying to express another point of view.
