About customized Android ROMs.

The popularity and demand for customized ROMs has been increasing, with many users deciding to switch from the OEM Android build to one of these custom ROMs. Unfortunately, Calling Card doesn't work well with some of these ROMs, and sometimes it even breaks with some non-Google OEM builds. Rest assured that Calling Card doesn't make use of any backdoor API, all the API calls and constants are defined in the official Android SDK. But some customized builds of Android change the dialer and the call log provider, making the app incompatible. As a software engineer, I do extensive testing of my applications both on the emulator and on the TMolibe G1 before posting them to the Market. Unfortunately, I don't have the resources to test on custom ROMs or on all OEM modified builds. If you find that Calling Card doesn't work on a particular custom ROM, please urge the ROM provider to publish a system.img for developers to run the ROM on the Android emulator.

Thanks for the woderful information. I always visit your blog to get the various offers by VOIP companies. I usally call my family in India. While browsing, I found an interesting site, which lets you make unlimited long distance calls from USA/Canada to India and rest of the world, using your phone. This is not PC to phone call. You don’t have to download anything or need any internet connection. I really mean unlimited. The catch is each hour you can make 10 mins free call to India (or rest of the world) and then come back to get another PIN . I even called my friends in UK and France, voice quality was okay.
Visit http://www.muftphone.com to make free calls. I also filled a short sponsored survey, and I received PIN to make 2 hours of phone calls.
Friends, just wanted to share this information with you. I am not working or have any affiliation with the said waebsite.
