When a MIDlet is placing a phone call using a platformRequest() method call and the "tel:" scheme, the browser is first launched on S60 2nd Edition and S60 2nd Edition FP1 devices before the system tries to make the phone call (or asks the user for permission to make the phone call).

This does not affect the phone call functionality, however the user has to close the browser application after the phone call.


There is no workaround for this (avoiding the launch of the browser when a MIDlet makes a phone call).

This issue has been fixed in S60 2nd Edition FP2.
