assigning a second network identifier and a second protocol identifier to the destination data corresponding to the destination device to generate a second entry associated with the destination device, wherein the second entry indicates that communications directed to the destination device are to be routed via a second network corresponding to the second network identifier using a second protocol corresponding to the second protocol identifier,
receiving an initiation of a communication directed to the destination device, and
in response to receiving the initiation of the communication directed to the destination device, selecting, from between the first entry associated with the destination device and the second entry associated with the destination device, one of the first entry associated with the destination device for connecting the multimode mobile phone with the destination device via the first network using the first protocol or the second entry associated with the destination device for connecting the multimode mobile phone with the destination device via the second network using the second protocol.
