    I need to create an application for a tabled (Acer a501) that can make calls using the built-in GSM modem.
    The best (only?) way to call out from an Android device seems to be using the Android PhoneApp library. However, when I set up a 3.2 (or even 3.1) environment in Eclipse the calling functionality does not seem to work.

    This is what I have tried so far: 14.1. Quick and Easy Phone Calls

    I have been told that there might be a couple of things I need to do:
    1. "root" the device in order to be able to install non-standard libraries.
    2. port over the code from <=2.3 version (or, perhaps, replace 3.2 with 2.3?)
    3. install a daemon that allows for this functionality

    It might be as simple as coding for the functionality and not being able to test it until the code is on the device (because the AVD doesn't support this yet).
