I am sorry if my question is nooby but I have problem with that
I develop game on BB and i have problems with voice call
my midlet is not being informed about incoming voicecall
when i press different buttons i got pauseApp() invoked (red, green button)
or isShown() returning false (menu button)
i did test on 8800 (even emulator) and 8310
how to inform midlet about that (call) and force it to go to background ?
i tried this :
class MyGame extends GameCanvas implements PhoneListener
public void callIncoming (int callId)
informAboutCall(); // let know my game about call
Application.getApplication().requestBackground(); // put midlet to background
it does not work
thank you for help in advance

The Application and UiApplication classes should not be used within a MIDlet. Those classes along with UI classes should not be intermixed between MIDlets and UiApplications.
You can use the PhoneListener interface to be notified of the incoming call and pause your game. The incoming call screen should automatically appear on top of your MIDlet, so you do not need to send it to the background. Or are you seeing that the incoming call screen is not being shown?

both 8800 emu and real
firmware ver is 18.104.22.168
i use GameCanvas insted of Canvas
it is faster but has obvious problem with call
the biggest problem is that PhoneListener needs to be signed
there is no other way to detect call in midlet ?
Category: Signed: This element is only accessible by signed clients. If you intend to use this element, please contact RIM to establish the necessary agreements that will allow you to have your COD files signed. Signing is only required for use on the device, development under the JDE can occur without signing the CODs.

I think you may have posted the platform version. What is the application version? It should be 4.x.x.x.
The PhoneListener is the only interface available to listen for incoming phone calls.

A ha, this is exactly the question I was going to ask. Yay for Forum Search!
So to be clear, the only way for a MIDlet app to know that there is an incoming call is to use the PhoneListener? (My game continues to run in the background and I want to pause it.) No hideNotify-type technique?
I too would prefer to avoid the signing involved since this is the only protected API call I would be using.
