In my app I can successfully make a phone call to a selected number using the phone api:
However, using both methods I get a dialogue asking 'Start call to 519-555-0100?' with Cancel or OK buttons.
Is there any way to make the call without this prompt?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for the quick response!
That is what I suspected. I will give up my aspirations for now.
I would appreciate anyone letting me know if this is likely to change anytime.

This s*cks too. why do they do this? Even on the Java BB phones you can call without putting the prompt. Just making the flow process more backwards. I don't need another prompt asking the user if they really want to call. Of course they want to call.

That's exactly what I wanted to do! But as defined and set-up by the user before hand, for example, as a security app that places a pre-defined call if someone else picks up the phone. What I have done is used pim messages to send an SMS message instead. An update for the app is currently in for review.
Thanks for the confirmation.

It seems like sort of a cop out by RIM not allowing this functionality. The app approval process should filter out all apps making unprompted phone calls with malicious intent. Make it a permission you need to request and stringently review apps that request the permission, don't disallow the functionality completely :/

I am also using the same API call to initiate the Phone call however the application that I am making is to be used in the Work Profile all the other functionality works like in compose of email but Phone app does not get initiated in the Work profile it works on Personal profile of the phone.
Do I need any special permission since it is been deployed on the BES Server? Please help me...
