 It is possible to run 2 emulators by running c:\<your Android 
SDK>\tools\emulator.exe two times.
I guess, one can run the first one from there for sending something to the 
2nd and the 2nd one from Eclipse for debugging.
Yet, maybe DDMS perspective in Eclipse will be fine because can send SMS, 
calls etc.
Anyway, 3 emulators then 3 times from the Tools directory

1. How to delete textfiles from the device.

Hi, I'm currently downloading information from an online source which
is saved in a textfile on the device. i'm just wondering what function
is used in order to "clean out" the textfiles once the program has
ended. Thanks.

2. String comparison with Text in EditText with online data.

Hi, I'm trying to use the code below to connect to an online source,
then compare the data as it is read line by line against what is typed
in an EditText field before displaying the next page. At the moment
when I run it and press the "Sign In" button nothing happens. The
problem seems to be with the comparison of the data. Can anyone help.
