BroadcastReceiver not receiving BOOT_COMPLETED

I've looked around here for similiar problems, but for some reason my BroadcastReceiver never ends up receiving the android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED Intent.

Here is my (relative) Android.Manifest File:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED"></uses-permission>
<receiver android:name=".BootReceiver"
android:enabled="true"
android:exported="true"
android:label="BootReceiver">
<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED"></action>

</intent-filter>
</receiver>


And Here is the actual Receiver.

public class BootReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {
private static final String TAG="BootReceiver";

@Override public void onReceive(Context context,Intent intent){
try{
context.startService(new Intent(context,ConnectivityListener.class));
Log.i(TAG,"Starting Service ConnectivityListener");
}catch(Exception e){
Log.e(TAG,e.toString());
}
}
}


Thanks! Any help is greatly appreciated

Turns out the receiver wasn't in the tag of the manifest. Whoops! Thanks for your help guys! The worst part about testing this is having to keep turning off and on the phone. :P
