Can the stock dialer behave different on 2 SIMs?

    Hello, sorry for reposting here from Motorola XT860 thread, but I want to know it other have the same problem on other phones...

    I jsut bought a XT 860 (stocked rom) and installed the Prefixer app. My goal is: when I chose a contact number, Prefixer will call a predefined number, wait for dial tone, and then dial the contact number. I put in Add prefix (on Prefixer) the "5141234567," (without quotes), where 5141234567 is the main number that give me a dial tone. Prefixer intercepts the call to contact and add the prefix (calling to 5141234567,ContactNumber), it calls my but after I receive the dial tone from my main phone number it doesn't dial the contact number.

    I tried to insert 10 commas (to give more wait time) but nothing changed. Even if I direct dial (from stock dialer) MyServerNumber,ContactNumber it dial only MyServerNumber and I get the dial tone and nothing more. I also tried to put it in the contact number but nothing. I also used the "Insert pause" instead of "," and nothing changed.

    I tried around 10 different prefixer application but all do the same.

    Actually I saw is a strange behavior. If I put a Bell SIM it works like a charm with many prefixer applications. If I put a Telus it doesn't work. It dials the prefix number, get the dial tone, but no second number send (I can't hear the DTFM tones for the second number). I saw a strange difference between Bell and Telus SIMs. With the Bell, the dialer keeps on front of the screen between the first dial and the second dial. With Telus, after a call is placed (the first number) the dialer goes in the background (disappears from the screen) and re-appears after 2-3 seconds in the foreground. This action probable is responsible for making all the prefixers useless. I don't know the Android applications architecture, but I suppose that the prefixers have difficulties to send back to the dialer the second number because of the top-back-top switch... But I can't realize how the dialer can behave different on different SIMs... Can the operator control this?

    Both SIMs work very well in a Samsung Galaxy S, so seems to be related only to Moto XT860 with a Telus SIM?

    Thanks, but I have no dual sim phone or adapter... One phone (moto with Telus) is intended for my daughter, the Samsung (Bell) is for me... I can't imagine how that software can do something...

    Clearly I misunderstood what you're looking for. Do you just want it to dial a prefix?
