    Question JSR 179 (Location API),Cell-ID from the BTS Tower ?

    Hi all
    I have read many queries posted regarding getting the location of the mobile from the BTS Tower in a GSM network ( without using GPS ). Although it has been answered that it is possible to get the location and i too know that theoretically it is possible but the question is, has anybody practically achieved it on J2ME platform ? coz i have seen no reply of it being successful.

    Regards,
    Vivek

    Hi anvivekkumar,

    In general, it is not available AFAIK. I've heard that it is possible in some Motorola devices using system.getProperty(”CellID”) but I have not tested it.

    On nokias, using J2ME... forget it... iv'e tried till i'm blue in the face.

    You can however get it from C++, Python and direct interfacing to the modems serial port using AT commands.

    Cheers
