Only the application with the current focus can get key and trackwheel events, so the answer is no.

As Dougsg38p says, keypad and trackwheel events are only delivered to the application with focus. The only exception is that in later OS versions they have started delivering some ancillary events (volume up/down, call star/end and the like) to background applications. If I remember correctly that started in OS 6, possibly OS 5.

You can get phone call events with the phone listener.

See the java docs.
