Hello All,

I have a newbie question: Is it possible to override the incoming phone call generated event or function? I mean is it possible to create a custom 'ring' effect, changing the ringtone and playing some kind of animation on screen? In case it is possible just give some hints where to start.
Any help or opinion is much appreciated.

It is not possible to capture or detect this event with the current SDK.

It is impossible to override a phone call event. I would encourage you to sign up for the free Apple iPhone SDK - it is expressly stated that the phone portion of the iPhone trumps all else Smile

So there is no way for my game to detect a call coming in to do any special caching or pausing?

Use the applicationWillResignActive and applicationDidBecomeActive delegates to pause/resume. Incoming calls fire those delegates as appropriate, but there's no way to distinguish a call from something like sleeping the device at that level.

Sorry for the confusion there. There is no way to detect an incoming phone call, however as Frank said you can detect the App becoming inactive.
