How to make a phone call from your Android app

I came across this Android phone dialer tip yesterday. If you want to make a phone call from an Android application, all you have to do is create a new Intent, either an Intent.ACTION_DIAL (to start the call) or Intent.ACTION_CALL (to place the call).

dialIntent.setAction(Intent.ACTION_DIAL);
dialIntent.setData(Uri.parse("tel:8675309"));
