Google Checkout, Android Market broken with no way to get support

 I have a few things to address here. First lets present the first
problem I have created a bug report for: 

Reported by a user of my application:

I had a replacement phone sent to me and when I try to re-download
application, I get an unsuccessful message.

I switched the phone out first, then set up the new phone. From there,
went to "my downloads" in the market, chose the Remembory icon, then
re-install. The application acted like it was going to re-download,
said, "download unsuccessful" in the notifications area.

Thanks for getting back so soon. This happened with only two of my
downloads, this and another, and they both happen to be the ones I
paid for.

So it would seem, if you purchase an application on one phone, then
that phone dies, you get a replacement phone and try to download a
purchased application, Google Checkout and/or Android Market do not
let you download it.

This goes on top of the bug I reported earlier about a developer not
being able to download their own paid application.

The number of issues with Google Checkout and/or the Android Market is
really annoying. Worst of all, there is no way to contact Google
directly and get things sorted out.

I have given this customer a full refund to make up for Google's bug!


Google Checkout, Android Market broken with no way to get support

 Tried to buy my first item. Says there was an error. Goto to fix it. No idea what the error I am fixing is.
Think, well, maybe when I go to the page it suggests there will be
some kind of message waiting for me. There is none. I test that
everything works and I have bought things in the past just fine via
the web. Try it several more times... Same thing...

Google, you suck ass!

1. Help me out with my Listview custom row layout, I already tried many combinations

I am having trouble getting my layout to give me result I need, I
already tried many options and it seems that I'm doing something wrong
or completely missing something.

I have a listview with a custom row layout I can't seem to working
although it shouldn't be complex.
I need of the list row to insist of:

Icon --  title text (bigger and bold) with a short multi line text
under the title -- ImageButton

My problem in most of my tests is the icon to the right usually
doesn't appear, I guess my center group grows and takes all the space
of the button.
My last failed attempt was with a Relative Layout, didn't have too
much luck with a Linear Layout either.

Here is the row XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="






Any pointers on what am I doing wrong ?  Would you suggest keeping the
relative view or dropping it ?

How can I force my vertical LinearLayout (@+id/centertext) to leave
space for my button ? I tried both 'wrap_content' and 'fill_parent'


2. How To: ListActivity (Same as of "Contacts" in android emulator)

Hi developers,

This is my first post in this group and I'm looking forward that this
community can help me in gathering information in android development.

I am currently developing an application that has a contact list
feature. However, I can't just call or use the existing contacts
activity for some reasons so I decided to develop my own. This
application is quite simple. It is composed of 2 activities (list
activities) for (1) list of contacts and (2) list of phone numbers (of
selected contact). Creating a list is quite simple. I used the
"Contacts" content provider for retrieving data and
SimpleCursorAdapter class for populating my list. However, I want my
"list of phone numbers" be the same layout as the default emulator
contact details list. I was able to display a list with images on each
list item (based on this tutorial
but I can't separate the focus for my imageview (the separation of
focus during onClick is my main problem). What I want is whenever I
click the image icon on the right side of "each" list item, i focuses
on itself. Exactly the same as the "Contacts" app (details screen) of
the android emulator.

Any advice on this? Please help. I've been searching bout this for
weeks and now.

I'm just a newbie on android so please be gentle.

Thank you and God bless!
