Make Phone Call?


I see references to System.GotoURL(“tel:00353123456”) to make calls which doesn’t work for me - I get: Safari cannot open the page. The error was: “The URL can’t be shown”.

Am I missing something in the syntax?

Is there a better way to do this anyway? Ideally, it would be better to be able to make a call directly without the need to go through Safari, app switching and adding an additional page to the safari tabs isn’t a good user-experience, in my opinion.

Thanks for any help

I use four in my phone settings:

PhoneNumber = "tel://"
PhoneNumber = "callto://"
PhoneNumber = "skype://"
PhoneNumber = "facetime://"
