The way I understand it (I'm *NO* OM-sw-guy!) the gsmd will start the dialer 
app on inbound call, then communicate with it over dbus. probably you 
can "kick out" the original dialer and have gsmd start your app instead. I 
think it shouldn't be rocket science to have this even configurable to switch 
profiles on the fly. Not sure anyway if the original dialer has some methods 
to talk to via dbus, but in the end it's called "bus", so probably you even 
can register for the same events like dialer and talk to gsmd concurrently to 
dialer, which shouldn't have to say much as long as it's not triggered by 
Again, please note: I have not the slightest idea yet of all this, just doing 
hw for gta03+, no time for recent sw ;-)
