 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.

1. Which alert went with which proximity?

When a ProximtyAlert fires, is there any way to know for which lat-lon it
went off for, short of querying the LocationManager and sifting through my
list of lat-lons?   I'd like to put up a Notification saying "You're near
Karen's house!"

Also, if three things come within proximty between reading, my program is
going to notify you three times.  That's irritating. Anyone have a good
suggestion of how to handle that?  I'm thinking of using a geohash to
"collapse" my list of locations, i.e. the three locations would end up
having the same geohash except for the last n bits so I would set a
ProximityAlert for that geohash.

2. Instantiating a layout from an xml file and/or resource id

Hello,
I'm interested in instantiating a LinearLayout object from an xml file
that has a LinearLayout file configuration. I want to do this within a
method of my Activity.

I tried findViewById() but that returned null. I've made sure that the
LinearLayout id is the one I'm passing. Note that this layout isn't
part of my screen, it's stand-alone, so I want to build a LinearLayout
object from the xml.

Thanks
