I'm switching over from Windows Mobile and I am a big user of WMWifiRouter. I know there are some Android apps for tethering, but there is a feature of WMWifiRouter that allows me to connect USB to WiFi and enable my phone to be used as a WiFi adapter. Is there such an app for Android? Thanks in advance!
Can I use my phone so it becomes a wifi adapter to pick up the wireless network in the house?I have a second pc up and running now, and until I get a separate adapter I wondered whether the phone could be used for such a thing.
What i want to do, is use either my tab 2 7.0 or my old htc hero as a router. I want to set up a homegroup from my server, but dont want to buy a router. My isea is to create a network and broadcast it from the wifi card in the ohone. This probably wont connect to the internet any time soon, but i feel that as long as i only need to access movies and stuff from my server the phone card's radiuswill suffuce.
I've seen discussions on how to use your android phone as several different things, ranging from a wireless hot spot to a keyboard/mouse. There are instructions all over on how to tether your phone to use it as a wireless modem, but I've never seen mention on whether or not it was possible to use an android phone as a USB blue tooth adapter. My Android phone is blue tooth enabled, but neither of my laptops are. Is there any way to use the phone as a blue tooth adapter when connected to the laptop via the USB cable (giving the laptop blue tooth capabilities)? I know I can always just buy an adapter from the store, but I wanted to see if this was a possibility first.
Does anyone have a dual SIM adapter fitted to their HTC phone? I am looking for one and would prefer the non-cutting type, though there doesn't seem to be enough room under the cover for the second to sit. Has anyone managed to find a good one that works on the Magic?
I have in my car a hands-free kit for a Qtek 9100 which has work fine for years with the Qtek. I bought a mini to micro USB adapter so that I could use the kit with the new Desire HD, but when I plug the new phone to the micro USB adapter the Desire HD just shuts down and I have to remove and replace the battery to get it working again.
I was hoping to retrieve some accidentally erased pics from my phone with an SD card adapter. When I opened up my phone I was surprised to see that there was NO sd card. who have that memory chip, but is there any hope for me without the card? Incidentally, Google+ backed up a few of my photos.
I have read all I can about using the Inc overseas and am confused. If the phone is switched to WiFi in a WiFi spot, can you use the phone? I have read that Verizon put some sort of restrictions on it, but I'm not savvy enough to understand it all. My daughter is in the Coast Guard and we both have DInc's. She goes to places like Star Bucks in other countries that offers WiFi and we would LOVE to be able to text each other with our phones. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Generic android.widget.Adapter iface has getCount() method which tells e.g. ListView how many items adapter has. what if my Adapter's data source cannot tell me it's size and has only method Object getItem(int position) returning e.g. null when there is no item for that position? in other words i can get some object at given position but don't know maximum value for position so, is it possible to create Adapter not knowing apriori its size?

I am trying to use a list adapter. While querying, i need to have a column called "_id" which helps to scroll through the database. I have an other primary key in this table. Can I use a custom column name, or am i bound to the "_id" column.
I have a custom layout with a lot of Views. Currently, I build the entire view hierarchy in the on Create, though I stream the actual work in small batches. This works OK up to about 1000 Views and then performance degrades a little. Obviously, I'd like to use the List Adapter pattern and only generate the parts of the View hierarchy that are visible on the screen. My parent View, however, is not (and cannot be) any of the existing List View types. My question, then, is how do the List View types interact with a List Adapter to limit the number of Views necessary to represent a big list? More broadly, is there a pattern out there for extending a Linear Layout to create special List Views?
I have a custom adapter to display a list of items with section headings. I've looked at Jeff Sharkey's SeparatedListAdapter and CommonsWare's MergeAdapter as examples of how to achieve this, and I now have a solution which works by providing a separate adapter for the content of each section. This creates a big performance problem, though. In my case, there are potentially thousands of items in the list, each with an associated date, and I want to use the date as section heading for all the items with that date. So, without section headings, I'd have a single Cursor which returns the items sorted by date. Nice and easy. With section headings, I'm currently doing this: One Cursor to select all distinct dates in the dataset. For each distinct date, a separate Cursor to return the items matching that date. Pour the dates (section headings) and separate SimpleCursorAdapters for each date's items, into my custom adapter.
My stereo system (Phillips MCM530 Micro System) has RCA audio inputs. I want to be able to play music from my G1 through the stereo. I'm wondering if either of these is what I should be using.

I have ListActivity to show a custom list. The adapter for this list is a complex layout only known for each row at runtime depending on data gathered in a previous activity. The question I have is simple. I know it takes 4-6 seconds to prepare the adapter for the rows that will be visible (first 10), however I would like to let the user know by means of the empty list functionality or otherwise. At present the ListActivity is launched via a button on a previous activity and when that button is clicked the new activity will not be loaded until the adapter is completed, and the user is stuck with the previous activity until this happens. Code...
I'm setting out to create a settings activity for my app. I've defined a PreferenceActivity with a nice layout including a ListPreference object for the user to select a bluetooth device. I'm having trouble dynamically populating the list. I would like to populate ListPreference with values from an array adapter (which I'll create and populate with relevant bluetooth device names). If this were a spinner View, I could just call setAdapter(). However with the ListPreference object I can't figure out how to attach an adapter (findviewByID won't cast from View To ListPreference, so I can't even get a handle to the object). I would like to attach an adapter and then populate the adapter with values, which in turn would populate the ListPreference with values.
