This is about OS10
Place call and send dtmf with VMWare simulator
I have asked this question earlier and got some contradictory answers.
1. No support for that. You have to write your own extension
2. You can use "invoke" and "phone"
The question is related to making a call in general. Is there support for a "simulated answer" like in OS5

I haven't tested this, but you should be able to use a tel URI.
Something like this should dial the number wait 5 seconds then send additional tones.
window.location = "tel:5555555ppppp1234";

Perhaps someone can say otherwise, but I do not believe there is a way to answer calls. Checking the controller.exe funcionality:
I do not see any sort of phone integration in that tool to manage such a thing.

The functionality of the OS10 VM Simulator has a long way to go to come up to the standards of the OS5 simulator.
To bad. I am disappointed

See this - devblog.blackberry.com/2013/04/blackberry-10-devic
A new OS release and simulator came out last week and this does part of what you want
Download the latest simulator (10.1.X.1483), install it and start it up - note that you can select Z10 / Q10 emulation at boot time
When its running go to <install folder>\controllers and run controller.exe
This should be somewhere like C:\Users\invgar\Documents\Virtual Machines\BlackBerry10Simulator-BB10_1_X-1483\contr
Select Connection -> Connect from the menu, give it a sec to do auto-discovery, then select the IP from the drop-down and Connect to the Simulator
Lots of nice new toys to play with including Phone!
It's pretty rudimentary from the sound of what you wanna do - basically you can 'Place a call' and simulate various answering scenarios. You don't appear to be able to simulate incoming calls.

I am not on terms with the simulator. Doing "sweeping" to get out of "settings" does not work for me.
I get two interesting messages during start up. "Refer to Blackberry 10 Simulator Documentation". Would love to. Where is it??
Another message tells me to check virtualization in the "controller". Find nothing about virtualization in the controller.
And I still cannot get "add a contact" to work. Have 2 versions of code. None works. Nothing happens. Maybe not supported in the simulator? I know it is not supported in ripple.

Click the blog post I link above
The virtualization is in VMWare *NOT* the controller
You need a newer CPU for virtualization to happen
My main PC (laptop) is an AMD quad core with VT enabled in BIOS but it seems to do nothing - I could try it on the slow Linux box to compare when I'm bored I guess
My Early 08 MacBook Pro - huka junk for iOS builds has a dual core Intel and the iOS + Droid sims fly on that (not tried BB on it cos I only looked all this up this AM on reading your message)
I'm playing with extensions ATM - written a Virtual Keyboard one that's almost ready for release (I'm having issues with the event loop but am close now)
Phone is on my todo list of extension projects but, fairly obviously, things I want in the API are more important to me on a personal level
There was another - sorta similar - Q a few days ago regarding phone so its obviously desired by the ppl who use the forums (many more will give up rather than ask)
If you can plod thru the API and email me (what's an MVS call?) with what sounds usefull for the community at large I'll see what I can do
The obvious requirements are - for most....
Dial a number
Trap incoming call along with the number its coming from
Monitor call state (call failed, call ended, answered yada, yada, yada - there are 9 states if memory serves)
I seems to remember seeing some DTMF in there as well - don't hold me to it

A step forward. Or 2
- Understand how to back out of an app.
- Controller working and answering calls
- Virtualization assist works
As for phone functionality it might be sufficient with an outgoing call and send DTMF. If it works as mentioned with tel: on a real device I will test later on a real device.
Currently 2 unresolved issues. Unzip problem that should be on its way to be fixed. I hope. And adding a contact
