I would like to get a trace of any incoming & outgoing requests over HTTP from my android phone over a period of time (like you can do with Fiddler on a PC) - is there tool apart from WhisperCore that can do something like this?

The reason i don't want WhisperCore is because it needs to encrypt your whole device before it lets you use the tracer

try tcpdump, netstat combination. – eradicus May 19 '11 at 8:59
It probably depends on what specifically you're trying to achieve. Are you trying to trace what calls an application is making, or just what the browser is doing? Is the device rooted? – Joe May 27 '11 at 4:27
You could use your computer to host a wireless connection, and proxy through Fiddler – Soumya Jun 5 '11 at 7:46
