Current Location of Phone
The current location is displayed on mobile phones all the time.
Can i read that information from the screen or through some functions.
please dont refer to the discussion on CellID with 40 replies.
I have already read it .
All i want is how to read the current location information which is displayed on phone all the time.
thanks and regards
What do you mean by "The current location is displayed on mobile phones all the time." - it's not on my phone.
The only thing I've ever seen on the idle screen is the CellID - but obviously that's not what you're talking about.
So... I suggest you explain what you mean by the location that's "displayed ... all the time" and then maybe someone will be able to help you.
Maybe Cell Broadcast
In some countries this kind of information is supplied by cell broadcast. But sadly cell broadcast has the same problem as the Cell-Id. There is no public API to read it.
Re: Current Location of Phone
i here found this useful page which gives a code about retrieving Broadcast MEssages, whioi\ich shows the current location (Channel 50 in case of India) using etelmm.h library in Symbian C++
The libraries could be found at
But somehow i cant manage to make it work.. so please if someone can do it do post me back
