 Hi geeks!

Im new to the android.accounts apis, and now Im trying to do something
with them but a seemly dummy problem occurs...
I`ve created an Authenticator for my app but did not yet implement the
abstract methods. The icon of it successfully appears in the system
Add a Account window, and I know that when I click it, the method
addAccount in the Authenticator will be invoked.

Now I wish to do some simple thing in this method, and write codes

public Bundle addAccount(AccountAuthenticatorResponse response,
        String accountType, String authTokenType, String[]
        Bundle options) {

    String accountName = "";
    Account account = new Account(accountName, accountType);
    String password = "example_password";
    AccountManager manager = AccountManager.get(context);
    manager.addAccountExplicitly(account, password, null);

    Bundle bundle = new Bundle();
    bundle.putString(AccountManager.KEY_ACCOUNT_NAME, accountName);
    bundle.putString(AccountManager.KEY_ACCOUNT_TYPE, accountType);
    return bundle;

Ive seen the demo of SampleSyncAdapter, and make moves like it. But I
practice using these APIs by directly adding an account. But system
crashed by the line manager.addAccountExplicitly(account, password,
null); Whats wrong with it?

1. ListView with the CheckBoxPreference look


I am trying to build a ListView that contains items that look exactly
like the CheckBoxPreference, an, an and a checkbox.

I am using a SimpleAdapter and I manage to either have only text1 and
the checkbox, or text1 and text2, but never all the 3 of them. Is
there something I am missing?




2. ACTION_CALL Permission Problem

Hi all,
I'm makeing some test about Android permission with a very simple
application. I'm launching this Intent

       Uri callUri = Uri.parse("tel://12345678");
       Intent callIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_CALL,callUri);

and using this configuration file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android=""
   <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/
       <activity android:name=".CallActivity"
               <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

without any permission.

The problem is the phone dial the number but I didn't set any
permission. I know something has changed in last release but.....

Where's the trouble?
