I've searched through this board, but without finding an answer to
this question:

is it possible to perform a network request (e.g.: by using
HttpConnection) forcing a specific APN to be used?

1. Changing screens - switching between layouts?


I am trying to create an app for android 1.5 which would be organized
around 4-5 'screen's that will be changing in a given order.

So I start ma app with the first screen, which it's background and a
button. When I click on the button a new screen appears with a
different background and different options which lead to next screens.
Sth. that is usually seen in games. The problem is that I need to pass
a lot of data between those 'screens' like and array with recorded
sound. My idea was to create a separate xml layout file for each
screen and change the context in the activity class so ie:

public class ApiDemos extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

        //and handle other visible elements.


    OnClickListener mButton01Listener = new OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
               //and handle other visible elements
               //plus running some functions i.e. start_recroding();

     //and so on and so on...

A simple test app for 3 screens works this way but my I don't really
like this approach and it seems to be inappropriate.

Is this the correct way of organizing such an app in android or should
I take another approach - if I should, please give a more detailed
advice on how to do this.

I would like to develop an app where a device can detect another phone

exchange OTA.
I'm not sure about the best approach / architecture to do so.
Is Wifi tethering (with both a client and a server) could be the best
way ? But I'm worried about the performance / ressource impact of the
