First, there is no single "defalut SMS application". Each device may
have different ones.

Second, the AOSP Messaging application ( is not part
of the Android SDK, and so there are no documented APIs for
manipulating it.

You cannot modify settings in another application, any more than other
applications can hack into yours. Sorry!

1. (a bit OT): Google Checkout help

Now I have to play a support person for Google Checkout too.
I've got a customer who later cancelled his order and I got this
message (via Google Checkout) from him a few minutes ago:

"Hello ...,
<John Doe> has sent you the following message:

Question regarding order #234230...:
I requested a refund on this order and according to the status, my
card shouldn't be charged. But on my bank account today it shows I was
charged. Please have this fixed ASAP, Thank you.

 Order Details - <date time>
 Google Order #<...>
 Shipping Status         Qty    Item      Price 
  Cancelled Items        1      <software..>    $<price>
Tax (<state>) : $0.00   
Total : $<price>
Order cancelled - Your card was not charged"

Does anybody know the link to Google Checkout help which explains why
Google doesn't charge immediately (besides the 24/48 hour period) to
allow the user to buy multiple items but charge him once to save on
transaction fees, and presumably does that for cancelled orders. I'm
pretty sure I read about this but my I'm extremely tired and can't
find it.



2. (OT) Is the combination of Android Market and Google Checkout a joke?

So design games with replay value.   Randomize things, periodically release
downloadable levels, whatever.

Once Google gets its act together and stops being the laughing stock
of the mobile world, there is the potential for games and other
software to be better on the Android platform because a) they can be
due to a better programming/runtime environment and b) they have to be
because of the Market policies.

Yes, Chinese is easy if people speak slowly to you, in proper tones
and without an accent. But this is not how Chinese is spoken. --
