View background question

 Does anyone know how to set a View background drawable that clips the
image rather than scaling it (sort of like using a ImageView with wrap-
content instead of fill_parent).

I like to set background drawable and not have it distorted (looks
especially bad when going to landscape orientation).

Is there a way to do this?

Alternatively, is there a way to set an ImageView as a View
background and overlay the other views on it?

Thank you!

 I figured this out.

Use RelativeLayout and you can overlay views. This makes it possible
to use an ImageView to create a nonscaling backgroud.

Hope this helps someone out there!

1. Not able to set APN with 2G network, but works with 3G

When you have a 3G connection, can you check the APN setting and see if it
shows MCC and MNC?

When you create a new APN, does it auto-fill the MCC/MNC settings?

If you can collect a bug report right after the device connects on 3G it
might help understand what's happening.

Use adb logcat, DDMS, or the DDMS perspective in Eclipse to examine
