    Hi everyone,

    Apologies if this is not the right section.

    I'm looking for my application to be the "middle man" between the user and USSD. I'm not sure if my design the mobile platforms (Android/IOS) allow the application to execute USSD and capture the response in background in a manner that the user doesn't even know USSD is being executed.

    I want my application to substitute a sequence of an USSD menu.

    Is this achievable?

    Hi Andre,

    Cordova plugins can make possible anything that is already achievable for native apps. However, it appears that API's for USSD are severely limited - on Android you can use USSD, but it does not appear to be possible to hide the response from the user and there is no support for getting the USSD response in the app; and on iOS it appears to be impossible to programmatically dial numbers containing * and #

    It appears that "stealth" USSD is not possible in either Android or iOS. The cited reason by both vendors is "security".


    Visit the Telerik Verified Plugins Marketplace and get the custom Cordova plugin you need, already tweaked to work seamlessly with AppBuilder.
