Prevent sending SMS

Postby timefrenzy » Fri Jun 11, 2010 2:53 pm

Hi,

currently I'm trying to evaluate Android for my company. I didn't find an answer to the following situation. We want to deliver devices to our customers and they shall be able to use the software on the devices. The software connects to our servers, but they should not be able to call anybody or send a sms? Is it possible to implement the software in order to prevent this?

I already found the permission PROCESS_OUTGOING_CALLS. I think it should be possible to abort making a call. But in case the software doesn't run ...

thx for help

not sure about this, but I think the phone might have to be rooted to accomplish this. If that's the case, your company will want to think hard about rooting. Or give 'em iPads so they can't make calls if they want to...

So that's all it takes to get a response to a post on this forum?

I do my best to help out those in the areas that I can. If I do not know the answer off of the top of my head, I move on, and do not offer any suggestions :)
