You are missing the point. Unless you have evidence that your alarms go
off on devices other than your own, it may simply be a matter of some
WakeLock being wedged on your own device.

2. QSB and Images in suggestion provider

hi Everyone,

I was playing with the QSB and content providers and I found a problem
at the time of using suggestions providers. What I want to achieve is
what the contact app have which is to show an image in a suggestion
with the particular need that the image is not a resource, I have them
stored in a database so, basically I have them as bytes.

As far as I understood a row (in a matrix cursor) for the field
SUGGEST_COLUMN_ICON_1 can be completed using a content, a resource id
or a file.

When I try to set the value for that image as "content://com.mycompany/
items/1" the content provider that is supposed to handle this is not
ever invoked.

Can anyone give a any clue about what I am doing wrong or how can I
achieve this ? If

Regards, Pablo
