Archived:PlatformRequest fails to make a phone call on Series 40 3rd Edition (Known Issue)
On the Series 40 platform a MIDlet trying to initiate a phone call with platformRequest() has to exit before the call can be placed. However, if the MIDlet calls notifyDestroyed() immediately after the platformRequest() method call on the Nokia 6280 device, the phone number will not be called.
The workaround is to insert a sleep() method call after the platformRequest() call but before the notifyDestroyed() method call. A short sleep of 2 seconds (2000 milliseconds) is usually enough to make the phone call to happen.
