# android.permission.MODIFY_PHONE_STATE权限问题

android.permission.MODIFY_PHONE_STATE权限限制已经改为系统权限

Also, just to save everyone some searching. I've been researching this and here's what happened:

David marked the permission MODIFY_PHONE_STATE as signatureOrSystem. That means only apps installed to the /system folder or signed with the certificate used to build the phone (i.e. your phone's manufacturer) will be able to use the permission.

As a developer, if you are using the permission there is NO WORK AROUND... unless you can convince every manufacturer to include your app as a preinstalled bloatware.
