Call Timer can make your phone automatically hang up when your call reaches a
configurable predefined time. Why it is needed? Many network carriers or telecom
services offer free calls for first 5, 10, 20, xx minutes. If you don't want to
monitoring the time elapsed and manually hang-up the call while talking, then
you can have this application do it for you.
NOTICE: LG PHONEs
LGs may not hang up, in this case, please try to enable
Setting->Accessibility->Power button ends calls (Ajustes ->
Accesibilidad->Colgar or Ajustes -> Accesibilidad->"El boton de activado
1/ Auto hang up: user sets time limit once and the application will be in
standby mode; whenever there is an outgoing call or incoming call (optionally),
the application will be activated and begin to time the call.
2/ Periodic notifications: This is useful for people who are charged per
3/ Specific numbers: Allow you to specify individual phone numbers to apply
limit of talk time to. You can add phone number to specific number list either
by picking up contact from contacts list or by adding phone number prefixes,
which are common beginning digits of the phone numbers that you want to add to
the specific number list. Please note that when you choose to use "Specific
numbers" feature, call-timer will not be activated (no auto hang up nor
notifications) for phone numbers which do not belong to those numbers that have
been added to specific number list.
4/ Exclude contacts from timer: If you don't want call timer to have
on certain contacts or numbers (for example, toll free numbers), you can
add those contacts to a list or add prefixes of those number to a list.
5/ Multi-call feature: Multi-call support allows you to:
a/ View current used minutes
accumulatively counted from the begining of current month. With minimum
configuration setting ( Enable field "Monitor sum used"), you will know the
amount of minutes used.
b/ Monitor calls for period of whole month
(not just monitoring one call separately as before).
- if you enable "Multi-call mode" and not change or
change only "Begining balance (minutes)", then ONLY the last call (call that
runs out monthly free time ) of month hangs up. In other word, call hangs
up ONLY when balance equal zero. Begin balance is the amount of remaining
minutes you have for your current plan at the time you install this application.
Every new month comes, this number is auto set to number in field "Minutes" in
"Quick settings" category.
c/ Limit free time to a time interval and
apply auto hang up to only calls that go into this interval.
- if you change setting (applied for plan with free
minutes from xx hours to yy hours) in "Setting free time interval", call
will hang up when it reaches the "Free to" limit if your balance still >= 0,
otherwise call will finish when balance equal to 0 . The default settings for
"Free From" and "Free To" are 0 and 24, correspondingly. The settings mean
that all day is free. When change these settings, you should enter hours in
24-hour format and configure your phone to use 24-hour format (check it in
Settings-->Date and Time).
PLEASE NOTE: if you enable "Multi-call mode", when
your balance finishes, any further call will hang up immediately after new call
is made, to continue make call as usual you eithor need to disable the option or
disable the application till the end of the month.
6/ Dual SIM support: if you make call from second SIM card, please enable
option "2 SIM adjustment". PLEASE NOTE: Still have problem with Galaxy S DUOS.
7/ Auto redial.

9/ Temporarily disable call timer for current call.
10/Widget for fast enable/disable and for dialing most contacted contacts.

occur due to first time data is not initialized
