GsmCellLocaion.getCid frequently returns -1

 I know that a -1 value from a call to GsmCellLocaion.getCid means that
the network is unknown.  But, I'm frequently getting that as a result
even though the phone is connected to the network and able to send/
receive calls.

Can anyone shed some light on why this happens and how to get around
it?  From what I can tell, GsmCellLocation.getCid() is the only API
call to get the tower id that the phone is connected to.

Thanks in advance.

2. class com.android.camera.UploadService does not exist?

I haven't looked in detail, but this looks like yet another case of a
platform application that uses private platform APIs and therefore
can't be built against the SDK.
