Formatting Syntax


Phone Calls

Launch Dialer app

action= “android.intent.action.DIAL”, uri= “tel:5551237654”

app.SendIntent(null, null, “android.intent.action.DIAL”, null, “tel:5551237654”);

Direct Call

action= “android.intent.action.CALL”, uri= “tel:5551237654”

app.SendIntent(null, null, “android.intent.action.CALL”, null, “tel:5551237654”);

Please note that no package or activity is required because Dialer app differs among manufacturers and sometimes event among models from same manufacturer.

Some devices may display the Dialer app for both DIAL and CALL

The main differences, in addition to whether the user needs to press the button are:

  • CALL requires PHONE permission and DIAL does not
  • DIAL does not allow emergency calls
  • DIAL suppresses some special characters such as # to prevent abuse
