thanks a lot, really saved my head....

You should not do any http calls in onCreate.
Burno thank you for this series. I am trying to do something similar, but a bit different. I'm trying to call the Azure Management REST API from Android. Most of what you've put together here would apply with the exception of the SSL requirement for Azure Management. I'm so frustrated by this I'm about to create an bridge in WCF to wrap around the management services.
I'm wondering if you have any words of advise on this.
I have the management cert needed, the problem is figuring out the correct way to load that into the HTTP request object (C# makes it easy, Java not so much). I hit a lot of dead ends on this and am still a bit new to Android in general.
