    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to know if this can be done with B4A.

    I would like to be able to view all of my phone contacts in a list view and allow the user to select 1 or more contacts, get their phone number and ring them and play a sound file to them. If that can't be done can I send a SMS text a message to them?

    Thanks.

    [It's a very old thread but I don't think that today it's more easy - possible]

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I will try sending a text instead since it looks like Android restricts sending sound files over a phone conversation.

    Thanks for the link showing what to do.
