A long press on the status bar is all it takes to bring up the CallBar. Calls can be initiated or managed while in progress, all without ever quitting or switching away from the current app being used. CallBar is directly integrated into the Notification Center.

CallBar Redesigned for iOS 7 and Notification Center

A major update to CallBar brings a complete redesign to the long-running jailbreak tweak. CallBar for iOS 7 makes multitasking while managing phone calls a breeze. The tweak is also fully compatible with FaceTime and FaceTime Audio calling.

When first installed, CallBar will be invoked by a long press on the status bar. Any Activator gesture can later be assigned to CallBar, to suit user preferences. When CallBar appears at the top of the display, the Notification Center is easily accessible by dragging down like normal.

Add Contacts to the iOS Home Screen with CallShortcut

The jailbreak tweak CallShortcut brings quick access to contacts directly to the home screen. With just one tap on a home screen icon iOS will start dialing the associated contact. Calling icons will be generated using the photos set in Contacts.

Why is my number blocked when I call from the iPhone?

Have people asked you why you're blocking your phone number? The iPhone can automatically turn off your caller ID when dialing out. Chances are, if your iPhone number is blocked on other people's phones this setting is engaged. To show others your phone number follow these steps:

1. Navigate to Settings -> Phone -> Show My Caller ID
2. Select ON

Now when you call, devices capable of reading the caller ID will display your number instead of a "Blocked" message.
