It's not possible to test Phone call on simulator.

If you are testing in a real device. Try this:

UIApplication.SharedApplication.OpenUrl(new NSUrl("tel://" + message));

If you want to prompt the user instead of calling directly you could use:

UIApplication.SharedApplication.OpenUrl(new NSUrl("telprompt://" + message));
