I need to invoke phone Dial Pad with prepopulated number, however, Phone::requestDialpad doesn't always work. If Phone app has never been used since phone started, then calling Phone::requestDialpad brings it up without switching to Dial Pad (if then I manually go there, I can see it populated with the number I've passed to requestDialpad). When I close Phone app and invoke Phone::requestDialpad from my app again, everything starts working - Phone app appears and switches to Dial Pad.
Is this a known issue or I am doing something wrong? I also looked into Invocaion framework, but the manual doesn't describe anything for activating Dial Pad - only for making a call and showing call log. Is there a MIME type or action for just showing Dial Pad with prepopulated number?

This sounds like a bug. The API is quite straightforward and there isnt much that you might be doing wrong here. Please open an issue with a sample code in jira.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunatelly, submitting bug to jira is impossible - the dashboard page causes infinite refresh/reload in Opera and Chrome, and it is not visible at all to Firefox and Safary (404 error). Is there other way to report the issue?

I've already logged a bug:
As a temporary workaround initiate dialing directly from app:
bb::system::phone::Phone phone; phone.initiateCall("phone number");
