So this is another short post to help answer a question that the Internet seems to faff around with:
"How do I set the phone number in an Android emulator?"
This was important for me as I have been producing a proof of concept app that relies on using the phone number as a way of identifying you. Rather hard if all the emulators are on the same number.
So as a result it appears that the following information can be used:
- The number of the phone ends in the four digits relating to the port number that the emulator is listening on. So for instance when it's run on port 5554:
To change, you can run ./emulator -avd
There doesn't seem to be a way to set the port when using Eclipse's AVD manager, but they will at least start on incrementing ports from 5554 onwards so no chance of a collision.
