How to get the phone number of an incoming call in BB 10 ???

[ Edited ]



I have connected the signal  Phone.CallUpdated(const bb::system::Call& objCall) to my custom Slot successfully & it is working fine as it is notifying me when a call comes in. But using the objCall, I am unable to get the phone number of the person calling me. Can anyone help me in this regard???


I am using BlackBerry 10 (cascade) native SDK and BlackBerry Dev Alpha B Device with OS version


Thanks in advance….

There is no way to do it yet, unfortunately.  Development has confirmed that it is on the roadmap...no idea when.

it was said that it is in 10.2, but it seems that it did not make it.
i think there are some threads about it and also a jira bug report.
