getListView and setListAdapter deprecated? Where are these even being pulled from?

What is the parent class your using? These only work with ListActivity and ListFragment so if your not using one of those they are not available. But you don't NEED them, there are other ways to accomplish the same task.

Novice mistake, but I suppose I am a novice! I need to learn to not get so frustrated quickly. Haha. I was extended ActionBarActivity for some odd reason, instead of ListActivity. Problem solved! Thanks.
