 ust put the interface definition in both applications (and make sure the
service is exported). There is really nothing special about this beyond the
existing remote service sample code.

1. Programmatically creating a conference call

I would to set up a conference call programmatic, but there is no open
API for starting a conference? However in the internal GSMPhone class
there seems to be a method. Anyone that have experience with using
reflection to access the Android internal APIs? I would just like to
test if this will work and I am aware that using the internal APIs is
not recommended or even possible? {

 public boolean canConference() {
        return mCT.canConference();




2. Sync using AbstractThreadedSyncAdapter


I'm building an application that has to read some information from the
server and reacts on that. I also want to give the user of the app the
ability to force an update.

I saw the sync system (don't know the official name) that comes with
version 2.0. Looks useful, but some things are unclear to me:

At what interval is the onPerformSync method called? I did some tests
and saw that it varies (every minute, to several hours not at all, to
every hour), but I could not find a pattern.

Can these interval times be changed? I like to sync every 10 minutes

Can I programmatically force a sync operation when a user requests it?

What happens when the phone isn't connected to the internet because
Android automatically shuts that down to save energy. Does the sync
system connect to the internet for you? Does that also work for
internet through WIFI?

Hope someone can help me :)

Best regards,
