Invalid Phone Numbers Problem [SOLVED]

 Thought I'd post this issue since I've run into it since I got my new
G1. There must be others who have this problem..

I moved all my numbers across via my SIM card. It seems the SIM
cropped all the pluses (+) from the front of all numbers with +447...
in my contacts. (+44 is UK code).

Now, a +447.. number is valid, and a 07.. number is valid, but a 447..
number is NOT!!

This I did not know. Now I need to fix 100+ numbers in my contacts.

Further to this, and G1 specific:
In Messaging if I send a message to a 07.. number it goes in a new
thread. The reply will always (I think) come back with +447.. as the
prefix. This means it starts its own new thread! Annoying at best.

I would recommend everyone change their numbers to use the correct
+blah.. country prefix.

Also, the Messaging app could be a bit cleverer with parsing number
prefixes when it comes to threading up messages . Android dev team

1. is video recording supported on 1.5pre?

i have here an ADP1 with a Haykuro ROM in it. mostly it seems to work fine.

however, on calling setVideoEncoder(MediaRecorder.VideoEncoder.H264) 
however, i get app death with the following stack trace -

04-20 18:17:48.979: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(671): 
java.lang.RuntimeException: setVideoEncoder failed.
18:17:48.979: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(671):     at Method)

18:17:48.979: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(671):     at 
18:17:48.979: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(671):     at 

of course, it would be absolutely stellar if the error message 
explained just a little as to *WHY* the call failed.

should i hold off trying to record video for now?

(incidentally, it now seems like the phone won't launch my app at all 
now. attempts result in an immediate hang, with no UI at all. even a 
reboot doesn't free it up. what could cause this?)



2. Why RIL uses Local socket instead of binder ipc?

The communication between GSM stack and RIL daemon is done using Local
unix socket instead of Binder ipc.

Why was it done like that?
Are there any exceptions to when one can use Binder based ipc?
