Android :: Poll Phone Number In Android / Identity / International Dialing Codes?

Aug 15, 2010

Background; I am in the process of writing an Android messaging application that needs to know the current user's phone number. This is then used to connect to other users using the application. My application relies on looking up the user's number from Android's Settings -> About Phone -> Phone identity -> Phone number (this can at times be blank.. but that is a separate problem). I am assuming that the above Phone number contains the user's full number. ie, my UK Android phone shows my number as: +447832xxxxxxxx, where 44 is the UK's international dialing code and 7832 is the operator. Is it safe to assume that all Androids phones would include the international dialing code, which starts with +? I would be indebted if any Android users could have a quick look at their Android settings and confirm whether Phone number is displayed as +international code+operator+number, i.e. US Android sets start with +1xxxxxx.

HTC Desire :: Fixed Dialing Number With Area Codes

Oct 21, 2010

I used to be a blackberry owner and was able to set the area code, etc in my phone (i.e. to put it to 1+780), but I cannot find this option on the desire. I see FIXED DIALING NUMBERS in settings, but all it does is ask for some password? Does anyone know how I can go about setting it so ALL my numbers will call the area code without having to edit my contacts?

I have an HTC Evo. I hope I'm posting in the correct area. I had my phone number changed and the phone identity shows the old number. How can I change it? I ask because I had some voice mails that I didn't know about, I didnt get a notification. When I click on the voice mail icon, it says no voicemail. I have to dial my phone number to get the voicemail.

Android :: Droid Convert Phone Number In International Format?

Feb 12, 2010

I'd like to know whether it's possible to have phone numbers converted
into international format when a call is outgoing.

For instance, if a french user (sorry it's the only format i know i
won't make a mistake :-) try to call with the national format :
01.47.12.34.56 then a method will convert it into international format
like this : +33.1.47.12.34.56

I've looked into the doc of the PhoneNumberUtils but i don't know if
there is a method doing what i want.

HTC Incredible :: International Dialing Not Recognized +

May 27, 2010

I've had my Incredible for a month now and feel it is the best phone I've had. I'm coming from a Palm Treo 755P which I thought was good, but now looks like a brick. This morning I tried to make an international call from the Inc. and received a message from VW that the number was not in service or had been changed. My contacts list has a prefix of '+' in front of international numbers. he Palm recognized that and substituted a 011 instead. When I changed the number in the Inc. and added the 011, the call went through with no problem. I have tried international calls with Assisted Dialing on and off, and there is no difference. Is there a special way that international numbers need to be stored on the Inc. for the '+' to be recognized?

Samsung Moment :: Dialing A Phone Number From Within Text

Dec 16, 2009

Am I missing a setting here or something, the last few phones I have had, Palm and WinMo, would allow you to dial a phone number from within a text or calendar event by taping on it, any string of 7 numbers or more if you clicked on it it would ask if you wanted to dial, this is really helpful of someone texts you a phone # and you want to call it

I am trying to increase my volume for the handset. I have the original factory codes set at:

Samsung Fascinate :: Contact With Extension Number Dialing

Oct 14, 2010

I am a business user that has been a Blackberry user.Recently moved the to Samsung Fascinate.Love a lot about it but noticed that the contacts that have phone numbers followed by an extension the Fascinate lumps all of these numbers together rather than dialing the 10 digits and asking me if I want to dial the extension. Thus the call does not even go through because the 16 or more digit number now is not recognized as a valid phone number.Does anyone have a work around with an app or a new release?

Android :: Android Permissions - Calls Read Phone State / Identity?

Nov 17, 2009

My android app has nothing to do with phone calls, but I'm seeing that when I install a debug build on my test device it requires "Phone Calls: read phone state and identity" permissions. (I make no mention of this in AndroidManifest.xml). I'd like to have the minimum possible permissions, and wondered if anyone knew how to get rid of this? I commented out the part where I was logging some stuff from Build.MODEL, Build.VERSION.*, etc. I also commented out the part where I was detecting the landscape/portrait orientation thinking that that might be the "phone state". But neither of those seemed to remove that permission required.

I found this bug report but it's marked working-as-intended with a note about permissions being correct from the market but not otherwise. Is this other people's experience? (I'd hate to have to publish to the market just to test that out.) Otherwise, does anyone know if there's an API I can avoid calling that will make it so my app doesn't need this permission?

Android :: Phone Book App Stopped Making International Calls

Nov 9, 2009

I am looking for a phone book app which will help me stop making international calls. I want to be able to selectively pick the numbers I never want to dial as I have run a huge bill by mistake. I don't want to put international barring, as I won't be able to text abroad. I just want the app to stop me from calling abroad. Does anyone know of any app or know of a workaround? I currently use Phonebook and I don't know if this is possible with this app.

General :: Spoof (Phone Identity) Permission For Apps?

Apr 1, 2012

I cant seem to find any posts about this but it has driven me nuts since I upgraded to Android from my non-smart phone. I don't want to give my number out to every app I install. Yes I understand I can not install apps that require this permission, but is there a way to "Spoof" this permission. in other words if an app requests my phone identity, it would return a fake number instead of my real number?

I am running Cyanogen Jordon

HTC Incredible :: Way To Require That I Hit "call" Button Before Dialing Anybody's Number

May 5, 2010

May seem like a strange request, but...

Coming from a "dumb" flip phone, its way too easy for me to accidentally dial a number while messing around with my contact list and call history.
I will be swiping down the list, and it will dial a number if my finger rests too long on a contact.

Is there a way to require that I hit the "call" button before dialing anybody's number?

Motorola Droid X : Poll - Biggest Talking Point With Phone Seems To Be Size

Jun 16, 2010

The biggest talking point with this phone seems to be the size. Id be curious to see some numerical opinions! I myself have been waffling: at first I thought "Oh, way too big". Then this picture made me think its not the much larger than similar phones and I was getting it for sure! But this pic has me wondering. Looks pretty giant in her hand:

So: What do YOU think about the size? If you havent seen yet, engadget has a gallery of 50 some pictures.
