    this is working:
    Dim p AsPhoneCallsStartActivity(p.Call("+49-12345-6789012"))
    but when having more than one call app (viber , vovox) in addition to the android phone app, it will ask the user to select one
    is it possible to make b4a call a number only with he stock android phone app without asking the user for his option ?

    You have posted this question twice "Calling a phone". What it sounds like is you want to set a default dialer.

    I have experienced this problem with more than dialer. example SIP and the default dialer. I am not sure you can bypass it.
    i.e example. If you click a contact or even use a number from a website it will go to the providers dialer not yours.

    That's perfectly normal and it should be respected since the user might have a preference for a particular dialer app. Ask yourself this question, how would you feel if an app is forcing you to use an app you don't want?.
