To access network services on an Android device, you must have the appropriate permissions. An Android application can use most networking services only if it is granted the appropriate <uses-permission> settings configured in the Android manifest file.

The following are some common permission values used by applications leveraging the network:

► android.permission.INTERNET

► android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE

There are a number of other permissions related to networking, including those that allow access and changes to Wi-Fi state and network state. You might also want to look at android.permission.WAKE_LOCK, to keep the device from sleeping.
