    Hi all
    I m tested today on a old device my app, and i see the admob dont work, the ad dont show on this old device. android version is 2.3.6

    Admob its working fine on my devices 4.0+ but not on the 2.3.6 (i dont know 3.0+)

    my manifest its normal i think

    Anyone know this, have this same problem? how load admob on old devices?

    NOTE: Interstitial works fine, only banner not

    i have change
    Adview1.Initialize2("Ad""xxxxxxxx", AdView1.SIZE_SMART_BANNER)
    Dim height As Int
    If GetDeviceLayoutValues.ApproximateScreenSize < 6 Then
       If 100%x > 100%y Then height = 32dip Else height = 50dip
       height = 90dip
    End If
    Activity.AddView(AdView1, 0dip100%y - height, 100%x, height)

    Activity.AddView(adbox, (Activity.Width - 320dip) / 2 , 75%y320dip50dip)
    now works on Android 2.3+, i think the problem its on SIZE_SMART_BANNER or on initialize2
    Thx Solved

    notice that it will only work with a screen width of minimum 320 pixels.

    I also have a phone that has 240x400 and it won't show there I've read on their site.
