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. How can I use the hidden provider?

As we know, Google has hidden some APIs on newer SDKs, some of
providers(i.e. Telephony provider) are hidden, we can only seen in
source code, but we can not use on the current SDK. So I wonder how we
can use these providers. I know we integrate our own firmware,
however, I wonder if we can solver this problem on the current SDK, so
that my app can run on all public android system.

2. why would InputStreamReader returns null

Hi People;

I am trying to solve my problem about InputStreamReader returns
null..I have a Login screen which checks the configuration file.
and here is the configuration class


import j2me.microtools.BufferedReader;
import j2me.microtools.BufferedWriter;
import j2me.microtools.FileReader;
import j2me.microtools.FileWriter;

/** Configure helps the loading and saving of configuration data.
public class Configure
  protected void loadFile(String file,boolean define)
      if (file==null)
      BufferedReader in=null;
      FileInputStream fIn = null;
      String root = new String("//data//data//com.sam.nos//files//");
      InputStreamReader isr = null;

          //define null degilse buras android
          if(define != false){

                  fIn =;
                 // fIn = new FileInputStream(root + file);

                  isr = new InputStreamReader(fIn);

               in = new BufferedReader(isr);


As you can see i use the context of Login widget  I can see the fIn
constructs correct but isr is null..
What would be the problem.. any suggestion?
