I am new to Android. I would like to create an application that will
hang up an outgoing call after it has been ringing for several

Based on what I have read in the discussions so far, we can abort a
call that has just been initiated by using setResultData(null) on the
BroadcastReceiver. This just means we can effectively censor calls
only. Not exactly what I am trying to achieve.

If the ability to abort a call after it has started ringing is not
supported by the SDK, what other means is there for me to achieve
this? Are there any internal functions that I can use?

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,

1. Help: Signing App!

Hi All,

I have some problem when signing app, i'm very new to things like public

I try to build my project using ant, but always failed in signing part
(debug.keystore), when i try to build using 'ant release' command, it was
successfull but we still need jarsigner to sign our app.

Can anyone give some simple example from start to finish, the signing
process. I really appreciate that.
