@shura @norbert If you read the page that was linked, your phone number identifies your account – i.e. it is your JID. What's not completely clear to me is whether the phone numbers of your contacts are automatically uploaded to find matches – or whether you can just search for contacts by entering some phone number. And Norbert: Yes, I'm aware it's "just another XMPP client".
And no, I'm not interested – and I see no reason to further discuss it. So please forgive me for stopping that now.
@norbert I was kidding (but I guess so are you 😉). I only pointed at the phone number as identifier.
