@Pierre-AlainVigeant Did you ever get it to work with incoming calls? I have the same problem.

Thanks for your answer, I did write a comment at the top too, wondering about TRIM and write amplification. Have you any thoughts on that?

Thanks very much for your answer. I have made a general comment at the top as there are some points in the question that I don't feel quite have been addressed. Though your MTP point is important

comment Defragmenting my Android Phone
Thanks everybody for the really informed comments below. I think one of the key points mentioned below seems to be with the advent of widespread use of MTP rather than just straight mounting the device will make it become impossible. Nevertheless the gist of the discussion has been on defragmentation in general rather than the specific "consolidate free space" option I mentioned in my question. For example - does Android use TRIM - would consolidating free space help or hinder there? What about the problems of write amplification - would consolidating free space help there?

It should also work with Honeycomb, though seems to be buggy code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=18937

comment Workaround needed: Buying an application for someone else in the Android Market
thanks very much for the advise. I had seen the other question, and even commented on it, but I felt I wanted a question with a wider scope (i.e. look for workarounds if there is no official way). In future to widen the scope of a question, is it best to do this in the comments, or ask another question.

comment How can I securely store my private key I use for logging into my home PC
Which version of Android? More recent versions support disk encryption which will prevent certain types of attacks. I would recommend you protect the private key with a strong password in any event.

Phonemarks looks really nice. However cannot seem to get it to sync on a Honeycomb tablet. Anyone have this working?
