    Just in case anyone doesn’t read the comments of passsy’s answer, here is a summary of the useful answers:

    1) Examine your getItem(int index) method very closely and look for any logic, scenarios or missing ‘break’ statements which might cause you to end up with a null fragment.

    2) Check that the count returned by getCount() matches the number of fragments returned in getItem(int index).

    3) Examine your imports and ensure you aren’t mixing android.app.Fragment with android.support.v4.app.Fragment

    It’s a simple solution. I mixed android.app.Fragment and android.support.v4.app.Fragment

    hope this helps someone

    If getItem() in your Adapter returns null that can cause a null pointer exception.
