 i, this is outside the bounds of SDK-based development; please post your
question on one of the platform groups like android-platform.

Note: please don't send private questions to me, as I don't have time to
provide private support. All such questions should be posted on public
forums, where I and others can see and answer them.

1. SmsManager and double SMS message


I am using following code to send sms message:

SmsManager sms = SmsManager.getDefault();
sms.sendTextMessage(phoneNo, null, message, null, null);

But when this code is executed two sms messages are sent.
Does anybody have idea what can be a problem?

2. How to create an icon on the status bar ?


I would like to create an icon on the status bar(like bluetooth icon,
battery icon wi-fi icon, etc). I don't want this icon to be a
notification icon where the user can click on it for displaying the
status message. I just want this to be displayed on the status bar
during my app running.

Can you please let me know which API I should use to create icon on
the status bar?
