          I’m presuming by “not VOIP” you’re referring to cellular phone calls.  If that’s correct then your answer is, no, that’s not possible to do this.

              Hi Eskimo,

               

              Thank you for your reply.

              Yes right I meant cellular phone calls.

              OK. could you please explain why does it can't be implemented. I need the explanation to make business decisions.

               

              Warm Regards,

              Hendi

                  could you please explain why does it can't be implemented.

                  There’s two aspects to this:

                  • Technical

                  • Policy

                  At a technical level, you can’t implement this because iOS is a tightly sandboxed platform and, in general, one app can’t override the behaviour of another app, or the system.  In cases where such overrides are possible, they are always mediated by an API, and there’s no API to achieve your specific goal.

                  As to why there’s no API for this, that’s a policy question, and I can’t answer those.
