I am working on Android SDK 1.5, I need to read the person name, phone number & Email ID from the phone book. I searched on forums - net & got some guidelines to read the contacts & the phone number of a person. But could not find any way to retrieve the email-id from phone book. So, please help me for the same.
I am doing one application in which I am fetching the Cell, location ids of the towers. I am able to get cellid, lacid and networkOperator name. I am using the following code. private GsmCellLocation gsmCellLocation; gsmCellLocation = (GsmCellLocation)cellLocation; cellID = gsmCellLocation.getCid(); lacID = gsmCellLocation. getLac() ; String networkOperatorName = telephonyManager.getNetworkOperatorName(); But I need the location name of the tower, like what we get as Cell info display. How is it possible.
I came from a Iphone 3G on AT&T and found the Push to be very unreliable on that phone. I would just rather set the phone to fetch every 15 minutes. Will the fetch use more battery than having the phone on push?
1. My work email is set up under a Corporate Sync header, not an email header. This seems to email that arrive to not show up on my notifications header or notify me the way I've got the other email accounts to notify (ring, vibrate, etc.). Is there a way to change this?
2. Can the fetch schedule be reduced to anything less than 15 minutes? That seems to be a very long time to wait for an email to arrive.
I have a few questions regarding the usage of localization in android applications: Are there any interfaces available to find out when an application uses location information? Is it possible to know if the application is using coarse or fine grained location information? Is it possible to detect which type of localization is being provided, i.e. gps vs. wifi? And if the answer to any of the above question is yes, how? You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Android Developers" group.

I am trying to use Android's LocationManager requestLocationUpdates. Everything is working until I try to extract the actual location object that in my broadcast receiver. Do I need to specifically define the "extras" to my custom intent so that the Android LocationManager before I pass it to requestLocationUpdates so it knows how to add it into the intent, or will it create the extras-bundle regardless when it passes the fired intent to the broadcast receiver?
I have just bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 - very nice looking device - to replace my old and clunky Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. And I want to transfer all my phone contacts across. On my Xperia, I've got "Phone contacts", and gmail contacts. I tried to import all my phone contacts by first exporting them to a simgle file, and transferring that file to the Samsung. And now I've got this vast list containing, it seems, everybody who I've ever called or emailed, including various names who I don't recognize at all. Is there any way (maybe a specialized app) of keeping my phone contacts and gmail contacts separate? And how do I manage my vast list of contacts?
I just got my phone and the battery might still be stabilizing, and of course I'm fiddling with it a lot and I've installed heaps of apps, but I can't quite work out something. I unplugged my phone at midnight and this morning found my phone at 70% charge. I also got a message from my provider that I'd used up all my data. I checked and found that my phone had used up (sent+received) 30MB overnight. Google Maps was the biggest culprit - it received 700K but it sent almost 8MB. This is while the phone was sitting on my bedside table! And of course, as I'm driving to work (not using the phone at all), Google Maps was transmitting my location information back to it's servers so that the traffic flow is updated on their systems.
That's cool, but there doesn't appear to be any way to disable or turn off this in GM's configuration, or even exit the app. It seems that having My Location services enabled gives Google Maps (and I'm sure other apps like weather, gmail, Contacts, etc.) free reign to send and transmit data all the time. I don't want to have to disable My Location services completely; I want finer control over things on a per-app basis. Having Google Maps transmit 8MB overnight might not seem like a lot, but when the phone is idle, it disables wireless (to save battery) and thus all data is going through 2G/3G and I'm incurring data charges.

I'm trying to see how extra information can be attached to contacts entries. Looking at the SDK reference, I stumble upon the Contacts.Extensions (http://developer.android.com/reference/android/provider/Contacts.Extens ions.html) and Contacts.People.Extensions (http://developer.android.com/reference/android/provider/Contacts.People .Extensions.html) classes. Sadly I can't find any article about what theses classes are for and how to use them. My goal is to add a few extra fields to the contacts entries which do not fit in any of the current available field types (emails, im accounts, phone numbers, postal addresses). Is there a way to achieve this?
Is it possible to copy information from an email? Coming from a BB, when I received a link in an email I could directly click it to view the site. I can't do that on the droid or copy the link to paste in a browser
Is there a way to sync my MobileMe information (contacts, calendar etc) with the Google Apps? I know it can be done as easy as exporting and importing but I am looking for a solution where I can always keep them in sync without doing anything. I used to have an iPhone and I still have a MacBook and so I've been using MobileMe to keep everything in sync. I am soon getting a Nexus One and I want to make sure my MacBook and N1 stay in sync as well. Any ideas?
The email account that I use on a regular basis is the email account that my high school set up for me. It is not an account that is organized with a bigger company such as google, yahoo, hotmail, etc. When I tried to set up my email account on my Droid ally, it asks me for a lot of detailed information about my server and then said it could not connect. I used to have a Blackberry Tour and it did not require any information other than username and password to set up an email account so I know my school does not have any restrictions on this type of thing. Does anyone know what I should do? The Verizon store had no idea.
I am a Mac user (photographer/ videographer). I also rely heavily on my iPod Touch when mobile (i can often find a wifi signal when i am out and about). I use iCal on the Touch and iCal on my Mac as well as the address book on both everyday and as a Mobile Me user, my two devices sync so everything is mirrored and up to date. I also HATE AT&T for their terrible signal strength and coverage and have been a loyal Verizon customer for many years and this is why I don't have an iPhone. Okay, all that being said, is there an easy way to still use everything I love and rely on with my Mac (the calender and address book, mainly) and easily sync all of my existing information and future info to an Android based device? How easy is it to use an Android device with a Mac? I don't want to have to manually re-enter my entire address book into a new device.
I want to set an email writing down the adress to be send , subject and email body but dont send it right away.Also i will set a location and when i reached that location (through gps) my phone will notice i am there and send the email i set.How can i manage this?
