phone. I wonder which version that Hero phone will be based.

 > Any one knows the status of Donut.

There are no official dates for any Android updates at this time.

"Leaked"? It is shipping in some markets. I saw one or two in Sweden last

It has Android 1.5, plus the HTC Sense proprietary UI.

1. Alternate Line Service (ALS) Support.

The ALS allows a sim to have two phone numbers registered to it and
gives the ability to the user to choose from which line (1/2) s/he
wants to make a phonecall or send an sms/mms.
Also allows for any of the two lines to receive calls without having
to turn the one off first.

Most old school mobile phones support this feature.

Does android support ALS natively and if not do we have any idea if
this is a planned feature?
Also would it be possible for this to be coded as an application?

ALS on wikipedia:

Thank you very much in advance.


2. Getting outgoing number on HTC Hero (Sense) from HtcDialer

First, just let me apologize if this has been answered before, but I
feel like I'm been all over the net to find the solution to this.

What I'm trying to achieve:
An "outgoing call" BroadcastReceiver which listens for
"NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" intents. Since the application is only suppose
handle certain predefined phone numbers the receiver need to check the
outgoing phone number, and here lays the problem.

The problem:
When running on emulator or placing a call through the People/Contacts
application on HTC Hero everything works just fine and the
broadcastreceiver receives the "NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" intent. However,
when running through the dialer on HTC Hero (which is htcDialer and
not the default android dialer) the "NEW_OUTGOING_CALL" intent never
seems to be fired and therefor the receiver never gets the outgoing
phone number.
I've tried listening to PHONE_STATE changes, but then I haven't found
any way of retrieving the phone number.

The question:
Is there any way to get the outgoing phone number on HTC Hero (sense)
when using htcDialer?
