Warning.pngWarning: The Qt Archived:Mobile Extensions on which this article depends are deprecated.

  • The DialPad project (also in SDK) shows how you can wrap the appropriate Symbian C++ classes directly
  • Qt Quick developers can call Qt.openUrlExternally with a "tel" URL to open a phone call
  • Qt Mobility has a planned "Telephony Events API": This is not yet available in Qt Mobility 1.2.1



With the Mobile Extensions Telephony API you can make phone calls from your Symbian device. You can also use the API to notify you when the phone call status changes


Install the Qt SDK (recommended when Using Symbian C++ in the Qt SDK).

Headers required

#include <XQTelephony>

Source code

Making a call

XQTelephony *telephony = new XQTelephony(this);
telephony->call("+919464763259");//caller number

Receiving Call
