Is there a way to look up the user phone number other than TelephonyManager? In my G1, this returns null: // get your phone number TelephonyManager telephonyManager = (TelephonyManager) getSystem Service (Context. TELEPHONY_SERVICE); String tel = telephonyManager.getLine1Number(); Log.i("Telephone Number ==> ", tel+" <=="); Is there any other way of getting user's own phone number? take care, Muthu Ramadoss. http://linkedin.com /in/tellibitz http://androidrocks.googlecode.com - Android Consulting.

I'm really new in Android programming, so I have a simple question getting a phone number from contacts in my application. The method I want to implement is that the user clicks a button in my app and will be forwarded to the contacts. In contacts user has to click on a phone number and this number should be returned to a textfield. Is there a simple way to do this instead to implement it by ContentResolver?
I would like to forward all calls to my number on to the new predefined number automatically. Is it possible to forward incoming call? Probably it is possible for Froyo at least. I found application called Easy Call Forwarding. But many people reckon it dosen't work actually. We can notice forwarded call by onCallForwardingIndicatorChanged() from PhoneStateListener but I have no idea how to set forwarding mode.
I'm running 2.1 on a HTC Desire and I have a wierd problem with my contacts.Prior to purchasing my Desire I used a Nokia N96, all my contacts were stored on the SIM card which I just popped into my new Desire.If I go into Phone I see all my contacts with their numbers displayed underneath, however if I go to "People" I only see the contact with no number associated with it, if I go to edit a contact it does not show any number at all.Also if I send a text from another number (which is stored in "People") the text delivers and show only the number it was sent from, it does not link to the stored contact.I copied all SIM contacts to the Phone to see if this made any difference, alas it did not!
My sister and her boyfriend each have their own mobiles, but they share the same land line. When someone calls me from that land line, caller ID always shows that it's my sister's boyfriend calling me, when 90% of the time it'll be my sister. Is there any way to change the default caller (in terms of caller ID) for a particular land line when a land line is shared among contacts?
My son decided to lock his tablet with a random number he plucked from the universe! one that he can't remember! I'm pretty sure it's a MID here is the link to where I got it from. 8G 7" Android Tablet 4.1 Dual Cam Keyboard Case | Trade Me. I have tried all the different power volume button combos that were suggested on web, also have tried downloading the program to my pc to share info with the tablet, but the information sharing must not be turned on in the tablet, as when the device showed up in my computer it was empty! Where I purchased it from will send me a Getroot, but I have to pay and I'm not sure if this will even work!
I've noticed that in the People app, the phone numbers are formatted like this: (xxx) yyyzzzz but phone numbers that are used in message fields such as "Send Message" are formatted (xxx) yyy-zzzz. Is there any way to have the phone numbers formatted using the dash? Why, you ask? Because it's easier to read when you are looking up a phone number to give to someone; and I'm old, so don't laugh at me! GMail's contacts formats them all with a dash, but I can't find a way to make the Hero do so.
it is opening phone contacts and when i choose one contact i can get all detail of the contact but not getting the number type of numbers; more specific >> if the user have four numbers, i can get all number but not getting number type of these numbers i.e. HOME,WORK,MOBILE)
I've experienced two problems with Google Voice that are causing me to get charged minutes I wouldn't usually get charged. If I can't solve them, I'll have to go back to using my Verizon number. First, let me say that I'm using a new Google Voice number that isn't Verizon cell phone number or any other preexisting number. Second, my girlfriend is on my family plan, but she doesn't have GV yet. We're using the 700-minute plan, so we don't have a friends circle.
Problem 1: When I call my girlfriend's Verizon wireless phone using the GV on my Verizon phone, I get charged, and when she calls my GV number on my Verizon Wireless phone from her Verizon wireless phone, she gets charged. We don't cash in on our free in-network calling. I know, this should have been obvious, but it just never occurred to me until after I looked at the bill. I'd be able to work with that, though, and just select "Call without using Google Voice" or whatever when calling her if it weren't for the second problem. When people call my Google Voice number, I get charged when I don't answer. Usually, it's just a one-minute charge, but sometimes it's two or three minutes (don't know why). With anything less than an unlimited plan, minutes count. Not good.
I have a serious problem when making calls without a headset, with the phone in my hand. People I call are telling me that they hear a phone number being dialed loudly while I speak to them, as if I am making a call while speaking to them. Today it happened and the person said she had to shout to be heard over this loud noise-which I cant hear!! I must be touching some button or application with my hand or face, but what?
Basically, i use my personal cell phone for work and personal use, i have multiple exchange accts that keep things sorted and seperated.
recently though i have been getting more and more business calls to my cell phone, during and outside of normal business hours.
what im looking for is an app that will take a selective group of contacts/phone numbers/CID strings and if it is a "business" call then forward it to a specific phone number (external number, the actual business line).
I have seen apps on the market and around that will forward calls to voicemail if they match certain filters, but i cant really seem to find an app that will forward to an external number. Any way I could accomplish this?
I'm selling my house, and my old phone number (which is still active), is on the advertisment signs and MLS. So, I'm going to keep paying my bill month to month for that account until I sell the house.
However, I'd rather not carry around 2 different phones. I did not port my number to my new service as my old number was not "local" to where I live now.
So, I have service with T-mobile and now Verizon with two different numbers. Can I set-up something where anyone who calls my T-mobile number, will ring through to my my Verizon phone/number?
Do the Android users have the chance to reset the NetworkProvider, so that the location will be null? I came up with the idea, that its only possible to have that location null, after starting the device the very first time. But also than google will check the location right away for my opinion.
Sure, I'm implementing a default location for this rare case. I just want to know how seldom this case is.
Im trying to add a phone number to an already existing contact on a Droid-phone. Doing it at the same time as I create a contact is trivial, as the backreference I supply simply is 0 when creating a ContentProviderOperation. But trying to find the backreference through querying for a display name like this does not work: The big challenge is a huge lack of good documentation. I would be very satisfied to just get my hands on some working copypasta to study. Code...
i use below: TelephonyManager telMgr = (TelephonyManager)getSystemService(TELEPHONY_SERVICE); String sim = telMgr.getSimSerialNumber(); it return 89860109300212882323, this is a serial number for SIM card, but i want the mobile number (it is storaged in the SIM card, is it right? how get it?
Is there an app/widget (Widget preferably) that allows you to turn off your caller ID/number?! (As in hide/show your number when you call someone) If not is there a tutorial anywhere that teaches you how to make widgets that modify settings?! This would be very useful for me.
