    Cool Loaning a data port is possible in a not-yet-connected data call

    Hi,

    ETel.h says:
    Code:
    /** An attempt has been made to perform an operation which requires the call to 
    be connected - when the call is not connected. E.g. RCall:LoanDataPort(). */
    const TInt KErrEtelCallNotActive=KErrEtelCoreBase-7;
    Despite what is written in this file I can confirm that we managed to loan the data port before the data call has been connected. What we did was that we loaned the data port upon getting a notification on an incoming (data) call and after loaning we configured and answered the call with AT commands.

    Can somebody explain it to me how we managed to do this?

    Thanks,

    Tote

    Hi Tote!

    Short answer: Because that's how the code works rather than how it has been documented (which is why I'm a big fan of open source).

    Slightly longer answer: Because the telephony server interface is defined by Symbian but the underlying TSY modules that actually implement the functionality are not written by Symbian, but rather by the device manufacturers. So this might not necessarily work on all Symbian devices... hopefully the TSYs will be part of the Symbian Foundation platform, but I'm not so certain that they will...

    Thanks Mark! I was naturally aware of the short answer and actually should have been aware of the long one, too. Thanks for reminding!
