I would appreciate any information on whether and how LocalSocket can
be used to set-up server-less communication (i.e. without using

I believe this should be possible as I think this communication method
is used by RIL.java

I have written a test program to attempt to do that but have run into
a number of roadblocks.

I do know that there are a number of other ways to use LocalSocket and
LocalServerSocket and other classes to implement socket-based
communication, and I have implemented them. However, for the purpose
of my application I would need to implement (the equivalent of)
LocalSocket-to-LocalSocket communication.

Any help/feedback to help me implement this would be greatly

2. G1, Android and BT headset?

what feature am I lacking with my G1, 1.5 software that stops me
listening to audio via my plantronics BT headset?

This used to work on my Blackberry curve with the same headset, I
receive my voicemail as was attachments in email, when I play
them they open in the music player and play through the rear speaker.
How do I get the audio via the bluetooth headset?

With the Blackberry when the BT headset was paired it would send the
audio to the headset.
