You might try requestRouteToHost() or getActiveNetworkInfo().

The OP needs try/catch, to be certain. I held that truth to be
self-evident. ;-)

However, there is merit in determining at a point in time whether
Internet connectivity exists. For example, you might disable menu
choices that imply the use of a connection.

In this case, I assumed he wanted those connectivity methods as part of
his diagnostics, to confirm his suspicion that the device indeed had no
connectivity at the time of the crashes.

2. Youtube request - search

I have a request about YouTube APK.
I'm using G2 and Galaxy, but there're some inconvenient functions in
Please check the process below.

[Occurrence Process]
1. menu
2. youtube
3. press manu key - Search - type 'car'
4. press scroll videos to down until they stop ''loading more videos''
5. count displayed videos and compare with information about search
result (number of searched videos)

I've checked that Youtube was displayed '1000000 results for "car"'
But only 100 videos were searched.
I know that YouTube mobile can get 1000 results from video search.

So for UX, please improve next Youtube APK as,

- there should be possibility to enter others results "next page" or
"show more results'' "show all results''
- there should display correct searching count and also display
limitation search count using Context or Toast Noti.

Please check this request and apply in next version.
