Android: How to pause and resume a Count Down Timer?

I have developed a Count Down Timer and I am not sure how to pause and resume the timer as the textview for the timer is being clicked. Click to start then click again to pause and to resume, click again the timer's text view.

This is my code:

Timer = (TextView) this.findViewById(R.id.time); //TIMER
Timer.setOnClickListener(TimerClickListener);
counter = new MyCount(600000, 1000);
}//end of create

private OnClickListener TimerClickListener = new OnClickListener() {
public void onClick(View v) {
updateTimeTask();
}

private void updateTimeTask() {
if (decision == 0) {
counter.start();
decision = 1;
} else if (decision == 2) {
counter.onResume1();
decision = 1;
} else {
counter.onPause1();
decision = 2;
}//end if
}

;
};

class MyCount extends CountDownTimer {
public MyCount(long millisInFuture, long countDownInterval) {
super(millisInFuture, countDownInterval);
}//MyCount

public void onResume1() {
onResume();
}

public void onPause1() {
onPause();
}

public void onFinish() {
Timer.setText("00:00");
p1++;
if (p1 <= 4) {
TextView PScore = (TextView) findViewById(R.id.pscore);
PScore.setText(p1 + "");
}//end if
}//finish

public void onTick(long millisUntilFinished) {
Integer milisec = new Integer(new Double(millisUntilFinished).intValue());
Integer cd_secs = milisec / 1000;

Integer minutes = (cd_secs % 3600) / 60;
Integer seconds = (cd_secs % 3600) % 60;

Timer.setText(String.format("%02d", minutes) + ":"
+ String.format("%02d", seconds));
///long timeLeft = millisUntilFinished / 1000;
/}//on tick
}//class MyCount

protected void onResume() {
super.onResume();
//handler.removeCallbacks(updateTimeTask);
//handler.postDelayed(updateTimeTask, 1000);
}//onResume

@Override
protected void onPause() {
super.onPause();
//do stuff
}//onPause
