Since gtalkservice is not present in SDK 1.0 onwards; how can i use
the native IM client (provided by Esmertec) ? The IM client code does
not compile.

Or where can I get the source code /jar file for the required
packages ?

thank you,

1. Connection dropped / app sleep on device standby?

Hey Guys,

I am looking for some help. I am seeing something odd happening when
my device goes to sleep (Hero) when the device sleeps a process which
I have in the background seems to stop picking up data from it's
server. I can't work out of the service is going to sleep or if the
network connection is being dropped (3G & WifI) can anyone shed some
light on the status of the phone when it goes into standby mode (the
user presses the power button)? What happens if a thread that is
currently sleeping wakes up and makes a network request for example?

Thanks in advance,


2. Accessing contact's phone number

Dear all,

I'm trying to adapt my application (Personalytics) for the brand new
Android 2.0, however I'm facing an issue while accessing contacts'
phone numbers...

What I need to do is to retrieve the name associated to a stored
contact based on his/her phone number. At present I'm doing this in
two steps:
1) from a phone number I get the corresponding ID of the stored
contact (if present)
2) I retrieve the contact's name based on that ID

I managed to use the correct CONTENT_URI for reading contacts by using
reflection to be fully compatible with Android 2.0
(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI) and the previous versions

Now I'm trying to do the same for Phones.CONTENT_URI (Android <= 1.6)
and ContactsContract.PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI (Android = 2.0)
which is needed by step 2) mentioned above. But as soon as I try to
get a contentResolver by using
ContactsContract.PhoneLookup.CONTENT_FILTER_URI I get the following

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unknown URL 

This looks really strange to me, since it should be correct (it is
part of the official API)! Moreover, I tried to look at the "API
Demos" project, in particular to the classes:

which are still using the deprecated People.CONTENT_URI and
Phones.CONTENT_URI and thus no data (i.e. contacts) is loaded (of
course I have sample contacts in the emulator).

- Do you have any suggestion to solve this problem?
- Or is there another approach I can use to get the name of a contact
based on one of his/her numbers? (This must work on all versions of

Thank you!!!!!!!! ;-)
