    I think the dialer app will likely listen on the state change of the
calls. So it will change the UI based on the states of the calls.
    Like for "Dailing", "Call connected", "Call Fail", "Call End", etc
states, there will be different UI screens probably.

    and sometimes dailer needs to handle two calls(one is on hold, one
is active) or conference call.
