I would like to know what are the possibalities of installing Android
on Nokia Phone which have symbian S40 or S60 installed on them.

I took a look and some groups who have installed it on Nokia Internet
Tablets which use Maemo platform which inturn is Linux. However I
didnt get any info on how this could be done for Symbian based phones.

Any info would be very useful.

Best Regards,

1. No Network Connectivity in Service/AlarmManager Process.

That looks strange.

-- WifiLock is managed by WifiManager, which is not a PowerManager.

-- WifiManager has a createWifiLock() method to create the WifiLock, not
a newWakeLock() method

Also, I'm not sure this is necessarily going to work if you are locking
and unlocking at the time you are doing the WakeLocks. If your goal is
for WiFi to be available immediately upon the alarm, you will need to
use a WifiLock to keep WiFi active back when you schedule the alarm. To
quote from the WifiLock documentation:

"Normally the Wi-Fi radio may turn off when the user has not used the
device in a while. Acquiring a WifiLock will keep the radio on until the
lock is released. Multiple applications may hold WifiLocks, and the
radio will only be allowed to turn off when no WifiLocks are held in any

If this is something that's supposed to be going on 24x7, since keeping
the WiFi radio on all that time will drain the battery pretty good, I
think you're more going to need to just hang tight in your
doWakefulWork() until WiFi connectivity is restored.

Cellular data should be always on, if I understand correctly.


Ding, ding, ding!


IntentService in general is not designed for you to fork other threads.
Remember: the IntentService component will call stopSelf() as soon as
onHandleIntent() returns, if there is no other Intent queued up to be

Since IntentService does its work (onHandleIntent()) in a background
thread, I don't know why you're forking yet another thread. I'd just do
the HTTP operations in doWakefulWork().
