    How do you programatically do the following from the iPhone SDK

    1) Programatically Dial a Phone Number through the iPhone SDK

    2) Send additional DTMF after the number is dialed just like how you would program pauses into a regular phone.

    I know you can make a tel:// call but the issue is that it brings up the dial / cancel prompt and after that it prevents any future DTMF from being sent.

    Thanks in Advance.

    As far as I am aware you can't. I did hear that you could insert special characters into the tel:// URL that represented pauses but I can't remember what they were or whether it actually worked. Perhaps Google could help out.
