 I want to make an app that will react to a phone call. How do I test
this? ie how do I simulate incoming calls?

 All you have to do is:

   1) Start the Android emulator
   2) Open a command line (Start > Run, then type cmd and hit enter, using
   3) On command line type "telnet localhost 5554"
   4) You should see the Android Console
   5) Type "gsm call +44114444" and hit enter

You should see a incoming call on the emulator from the number given o step

 I see a similar option to test smss also, but it doesn't seem to work.
I typed: sms send +1234 qwer . The console says OK but no sms appears
in the emulator. How do I fix this?

 It's not a problem.

The Android SDK doesn't has an application to handle SMS messages, so you
will have to either create one or get one in the web so you can test SMS

1. Search dialog and searching within the same activity


i have a map activity and added a search dialog where the user can
search for an address. The map activity is searchable. The search
works very well, but when the search is started the activity startet a
new instance of map activity.

Is there a way to show search results in the same activity where the
search was executed? Because when the user uses the back button the
same (map) view is shown again, but he should go to the activity where
the map activity was called from.

Hope you can help!
Thanks a lot!
