Quick question - Android app works on simulator, not on devices

This is probably something stupid, but I can't see it right now.

I tried famous SMP101 tutorial app and it works fine on simulator but not on devices: Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy S2.

I think that both devices are already registered in SCC, can see them in Application Connections but there are offline:

What am I missing?

    Ok now everything works. Thank you all for help.

    To make a summary for someone with same problems:

    Solution for problem with WiFi on devices is adding android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE in AndroidManifest.xml.

    Solution for crashing when change orientation is:


    in AndroidManifest.xml.

    Strange.. You have to check in server and client logs for more information.

    Btw: which simulator (android version) you have tested this app?

    what about device's android OS version?

    • Former Member is right, android restarts the running activity when orientation changes. You can use the below code too, this make make the app work only in portrait mode.

      <activity android:name=".POListActivity" android:configChanges="orientation" android:screenOrientation="portrait" />

    What is in the log? increase the log level to debug in SCC>configuration Log settings (mobilink, dataservices and MMS) and check. Also you can debug the program and check where the code stops.
