 oes anyone know if since the last posting on this thread (Aug. 2009)
future Android releases have made the dialer app
more modular? That is, one can more easily replace it with a
downloadable dialer app.

I recall that at the time, some of the challenges of overwriting the
native dialer had to do with the fact that it runs
in the same process as the telephony framework and the APIs between
the two where not exposed publicly.

Sorry, you can't override the missed call icon. It is actually a
requirement that it work the way it does (the telephony system posts
icon based on voicemail status information from the network).
