" * A class that describes a view hierarchy that can be displayed in
another process."

But unlike View class, RemoteView does not have a 'draw(Canvas
canvas)' method.
Can you please tell me which method of RemoteView causing its layout
to be drawn on screen?

Thank you.

 RemoteViews are still drawn like regular views (they are in fact
regular views.) You just cannot create custom RemoteViews or override
their draw/layout methods.

Is there a way to look up the user phone number other than TelephonyManager?

In my G1, this returns null:

// get your phone number
        TelephonyManager telephonyManager = (TelephonyManager)
        String tel = telephonyManager.getLine1Number();

        Log.i("Telephone Number ==> ", tel+" <==");

Is there any other way of getting user's own phone number?
