Is it possible to override the incoming call screen?

I'm thinking about writing my own version of the "incoming call" screen. Is this possible? I know you can let listeners for this kind of thing, but is there a way to disable the default incoming call screen, detect that there's a call, and then push a new screen on to the stack?


Thanks in advance.

pre 5.0 it is not possible, the incoming call screen is a global screen with the highest priority, you can't use this priority yourself on a real device as it will net you a securityexception.
