When GPS information is not available-- how to handle it

 We all know that GPS information is not always available (e.g., my GPS
lost its location information when it is inside a building).

If an application calls android location API to try to retrieve its
location information (when the GPS module can't report the
information, as described above), how should the application handle it
in general?

1. Is this possible with Android

I am thinking about this scenario

1.In  a mobile with Android will be running my script.

2. Someone will dial the number( say number A)  of that mobile where
the script is running.

3.The script will answer and ask the caller( the caller has say number
B) to dial the number where  he wants to be connected to( say number

4.The caller ( with his number   B )will  enter the number C

5.The script will dial that number C and makes  the connection
between  number B and C so that they can talk together.

Is this possible to do that with Android?



2. is there anyway to force locale system numeric to English ?


This Problem Appeared in my SmartPhone and SDK Emulator 2.3

after changing the language to arabic

i can't add new contact it force close
but when i change language back to english the problem disappeared

i think this problem because the system read the number in arabic

look at this

Caused by: android.database.sqlite.SQLiteException: no such column:
: , while compiling: SELECT
FROM raw_contacts LEFT OUTER JOIN data ON
(data.raw_contact_id=raw_contacts._id AND ((mimetype_id= AND data15
NOT NULL) OR (mimetype_id= AND data1 NOT NULL))) WHERE

inside this query there is arabic number and it should not be arabic

i think Force Localize Contacts App to english After decompile it with
apktool and baksmali will fix this problem

this is tutorial but i don't know how to apply it without problem
