I feel that my platformRequest( url ) may cause the blackberry does not response (crash).

Is there any function that can work as this method in blackberry.

Hi, if your way is towards dialing then in blackberry use this rim api

String phoneNumber = "009232144667788";
PhoneArguments call = new PhoneArguments (PhoneArguments.ARG_CALL,phoneNumber);
Invoke.invokeApplication(Invoke.APP_TYPE_PHONE, call);

Thanks a lot!

I want to start a browser by providing URL in the Application running now. Hope it open a browser and visit website I provide.
