HTC Magic, is PhoneNumberUtils.PAUSE different?

 I am getting reports that the in the HTC Magic the character that
represents the pause in a dial string is different than in the Google
build of cupcake. In the SDK 1.5 pre-release, the pause is given by a
','. Apparently, in the HTC magic, the pause is given by a 'p'.
Unfortunately, I don't currently have the means to test this. Does
anyone know if the PhoneNumberUtils.PAUSE member in the HTC magic
build reflects this change? Have any other functions in
PhoneNumberUtils changed in order to support this?

Thank you,

 The Rogers HTC Magic phone is using the 'p' as a pause, but it seems
they haven't changed the PhoneNumberUtils.PAUSE to reflect this. This
is rather unfortunate, because it makes the Rogers build non-standard
and my app breaks. I would hope in the future there are no more
deviations of the standard SDK, otherwise, developing for the Android
platform will become harder.

1. passing object to CountDownTimer help

I have an extended CountDownTimer class and I want to be able to pass
an object (ImageView).

The reason I am wanting to pass the object is because I will be
calling this several times wanting different images to change.

        private void checkStatus() {

                getStatus network = new getStatus(5000, 1000, iNetwork);

                getStatus email = new getStatus(5000, 1000, iEmail);

        public class getStatus extends CountDownTimer{
                public getStatus(long millisInFuture, long countDownInterval,
ImageView img) {
                        super(millisInFuture, countDownInterval);

                        public void onFinish() {

                        public void onTick(long millisUntilFinished) {

I'm getting an error stating that img cannot be resolved in both the
onFinsih() and onTick().



2. [ADB -install] How to install and application inside an emulator, if only the <avd-name> is known?

Dear group members,

I have a question related to installing an APK file with the command
adb -install:

We have created via commandline a set of AVDs and we have started a
set of devices which run in an emulator. For all of the devices we
know the corresponding <avd-name>.

The result of the command "adb services" is now something like [1].

Now we would like to install an application inside the device
belonging to <avd-name>.

But having the <avd-name> the apk-file could not be installed. For
this we need the serialnumber.

How can we find the serialnumber, if we know the <avd-name>?

Thanks for a hint.

Best Regards
