    • Multiple calls visuals landed
    • The Dialer in now OOP \o/

Incoming call in Lock screen (swipe gesture to receive the call) already implemented

    • We've managed to include the "fixed headers" functionality in the call log so users have a clear view of what day they are seeing the calls of.
    • Information about the phone type and carrier (if any) is shown in the attention screen, outgoing calls screen and the call log.

Polish polish polish :) <-- yeah Include

  • This week
    • USSD:
      • Update of the USSD functionality according to the latest UX guidelines ( under revision by the UX team. PR to be sent tomorrow (26/09) the latest.
      • Bug reported regarding notifying the closing of a USSD session:
      • There is another issue under discussion with the "platform guys" regarding the closing of USSD sessions by any app with access to mozMobileConnection or only by the "owner" of the session. The USSD feature only accepts 1 active connection at a time as defined by the specification. This issue is related to the fact that more than 1 app may want to send USSD messages (such as the Dialer app and the Cost Control app) and a proper management of the connections has to be made in these situations.

[BLOCKED] Call log threading is not working due to this functionality is blocked. You could see the discussion here:

  • NOTES for Dialer
    • Issue 3033: Lock screen + Active call -> unblocked
      • Flagged Rafa + Ayman in email + issue CC, 8/5, for UX.
      • Flagged CLee to comment on feature importance for v1. I believe it's must-have.
