    phone: LG Tribute 2 running Android 5.1.1
    phone service: Ring Plus

    i have my google voice # forwarded to my Tribute 2.
    I'm using Hangouts Dialer so that incoming/outgoing calls is the google voice # and not the Ringplus #.

    but if i miss a call, i get a notification from both the Hangouts Dialer and the phone's native dialer.
    How do i stop the phone's native dialer from being involved?

    thx

    apparently I cant stop the double notifications because it's a function of the individual programs and not the operating system (ie: Marshmellow).

    hangouts dialer is an app that uses data/voip.
    phone's native dialer is an app that uses cell towers.

    when someone calls me, both programs are activated
