modify Incoming call screen

Hello everybody!!!

Does anybody know how to get control over the phone incoming call screen. My aim is to add some text below the displayed phone number?

I have investigated the forum  and I have found the following:


  • you can access the PhoneScreen using BlackBerry API starting from 5.0 version
  •  the incoming call screen has the maximum priority and cannot be obscured by others screen. That is the case if you want to push your screen over the incoming call screen
  • at the same time there are third-party applications that managed to change the incoming call screen. How did they find the solution?
Guys, maybe some of you were working on such kind of problem? In what way I should do my developments to get the success result?
Thanks in advance.
