 According to the emulator docs, you should be able to enable/disable
networking with the F8 key. I doesn't work for me and I'm trying to
determine why.

I'm developing on OSX Leopard. I've also tried in a virtual Windows
instance (Windows 2008 server running in Parallels). No luck in either

I've tried the obvious stuff like fn + F8, etc.

Should there be any sort of visual cue that networking has gone online
or offline when F8 is pressed?

Thanks for any help.

Maybe your observations not being able to switch off networking via
the function keys is related to the airplane mode problem.

2. Should a service maintain a reference to a Broadcast Receiver

Is it a bad practice to maintain a service level reference to a
BroadcastReceiver?  I do see there is a service level method
service.registerReceiver ....  Under what situations is it appropriate
to register the BroadcastReceiver with a service? To hold a static
reference to a broadcast receiver in a service?  Thanks.
