Phone plugin always asks for permission


I’m using the phone plugin to place calls on the iPhone at the moment.

One thing is that it does seem to always pop a dialog asking the user to approve the phone call, even when I have the second parameter to the dial function set to false (and have the prescribed bits of permission in my plist file).

Just wondering if others have had this too, or if I’m doing something wrong. It’s slightly odd that the phone hasn’t asked me to give blanket permission for this, so I suspect the latter.

Or maybe I’ve misunderstood the meaning of “prompt: Boolean to enable OS specific confirmation before dialing.”


Since iOS 10.3, the prompt was made mandatory.


Ah! Can’t say I’m surprised. What about Android?


I think Android should be fine, if you have acquired permission to make calls.
