Answer Call with special message?

 Is it possible to develop an Android app that would answer an incoming
call and play a recorded message to the calling party without the
phone ringing?    For example, if a specific caller called during
certain hours play a message asking them to call a different number
during those hours.

In a similar vein, is it possible to intercept a call and if it is in
a certain list of phone numbers divert it directly to voice mail
without the phone ringing?

Thanks for any insights into this

 I think this is currently not possible.
Only, in the contact list you already have the possibility to send
certain callers directly to voice mail.

2. Simulating scroll event in Android

Am trying to write an instrumentation test which can simulate
scrolling. Since I don't have an handle on the view, it's not as easy

view.scrollBy(0, y); // I get security exception

Also tried my luck (in vain) with the following code:

final long downTime = SystemClock.uptimeMillis();
final long eventTime = SystemClock.uptimeMillis();
final MotionEvent event = MotionEvent.obtain(downTime, eventTime +
100, MotionEvent.ACTION_MOVE, x, y, 0);
event.addBatch(eventTime + 200, x, y * 3, 1, 1, 0);
final Instrumentation inst = getInstrumentation();

Another option is to save the scrolling action as a gesture and use
gestures. Can anyone share the code for simulating a gesture (pre-
defined in the gestures file) in an instrumentation test? I've seen
plenty of examples that show you how to write a listener, but am
trying to do the opposite here.
