 You need to read up what Google Voice is first.  Google Voice is
specifically not VOIP.  If they allow such a thing, why would anyone
even get a Verizon voice plan?

 I believe there is a skype like program on Android. Google it.

Skype on iphone is only restricted to just WIFI and not 3G connection.

 Skype-Lite for android does the same thing, a local, regular call
connects you to the Skype VIOP, but you'd still be using cell minutes,
not data.  There is a SIP phone client for Android, check out

 I installed Sipdroid a few months ago, and found it, well, not
suitable. Below bare bones UI, but worst, only allows a single, fixed
termination service (uhum, their own)?

 hello,

Google Voice is a Voice Based service, It is not a VOIP based service
on mobile; e.g. it is
really a callback service like iSkoot or Skype on Android. You *are*
using voice minutes for
the call.

 Confirming this is the way GV works on all providers.  The way us
TMoblers are getting benefit from GV, is we can assign the GV number
as one of our "Fav 5" numbers, which is unlimited.

Not sure if Verizon has the same sort of package, but that is
necessary to get unlimited dialing using the GV app.

There are many benefits of GV otherwise, so it is a big benefit that
Verizon is allowing the app in the first place, and a big benefit of
the droid over the "other" phone on AT&T.

Quite frankly, it seems reasonable that you should have to pay for
your minutes if you are using them on the phone in the first place.

Hi Experts,

I need your help to know what can be the equivalent of following
memory usage scenarios for any given android application


Section                                     Memory (Bytes)

(i) Code                                ->          i guess this equals apk
size??
(ii) RO (constant data) ->
(iii) RW (Initialised section)  ->
(iv) ZI (Zero initialised section) ->
(v) Run time (Heap)             ->
(vi) Stack usage                        ->
(vi) Size of maximum allocation ->

I await your response . Thanks in advance.

2. problem occur while writing android.provider.Setting s.Secu颅re.ENABLED_INPUT_METHODS

That's right, unless you are signed with the platform certificate, you can't
write there.  That is why they are secure. ;)
