Allow direct dialing on PhoneCallTask
Allow users to choose if they want the "call/don't call" prompt dialog when an app invokes PhoneCallTask.
Fast dialing apps are killed by this limitation.
The same way a user can grant for background tasks, he could grant the app permissions to make direct dialing.
Thank you for the suggestion. We are not adding this capability in the 8.0 release, but know that it is high on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases.
Keep those suggestions and votes coming!

Please add this feature. It is sorely needed in the enterprise.

I was thrilled to switch from an iPhone 5 to a Windows Phone 8 device but was surprised there wasn't a "favorites" like feature for contacts like the iOS has where a single touch is all it takes to initiate the call from that page. I thought to write one myself but ran into this issue where it would require a confirmation before a call is initiated which means that a quick call app is not going to help close that gap. I hope they add it soon.
In term of business apps this limitation force developers to go on android. Same limitation for Iphone.
please add 2 access levels, the default as it now, with a prompt. but for "dialing apps" add special permission to dial without the prompts. of course do not allow the direct call to any app, only for dialing apps.
and it will be great if you allow to replace system applications for dialing, sms, calendar, etc. with non-prompting tasks.
Adding my thoughts, it NEEDS TO BE ADDED!
