    Unanswered: Using device phone/browser


    I am trying to make buttons to
    1. call a phone number
    2. send an email
    3. open a web page in the device's browser
    However the solutions I have found on Stack Overflow have not worked. The button press results in the app displaying a 'this page cannot be displayed' panel from which there is no escape.

    So far I have tried this (each in a respective button handler)

    Code:
    ...
    window.location.href = 'tel:9999999999';
    ...
    window.location.href = 'mailto:test@me.com';
    ...
    window.location.href = 'http://google.com'
    ...
    Then I tried it without the .href

    Code:
    ...
    window.location = 'tel:9999999999';
    ...
    window.location = 'mailto:test@me.com';
    ...
    window.location = 'http://google.com'
    ...
    Finally I tried using window.open
    Code:
    ...
    window.open('tel:9999999999');
    ...
    window.open('mailto:test@me.com');
    ...
    window.open('http://google.com');
    ...
    But all of these produced the same 'page cannot be displayed' result. How are you supposed to send emails, make phone calls and open webpages in Sencha?

    This is up to the native packager to allow or support. We are doing some work currently with URI schemas for our native packager.

    with Cordova (PhoneGap), document.location.href = 'tel:+phoneNumber' works on Android. It might not work on iOS5 but from a little searching, i found that there is a plugin available for it.

    Hi, to open external link in Phonegap use the chidlBrowser plugin (for both iOS and Android):
    https://github.com/phonegap/phonegap-plugins
    The Phonegap Plugin for iOS to dial a number (works for me):
