    No coverage detection

    Hello!

    I was wondering if you guys could tell me a way of detecting I just lost reception?

    I'm running the CTelephony NotifyChange() method, but once I lose reception I get zeros as notifications of CellId, Network Modes etc. I thought that I shouldn't be notified of these values as there are in fact no cellid's numbered zero, but putting that aside.

    I also tried catching the iStatus.Int() == KErrAccessDenied as an indication of a lack of signal, but this doesn't seem to be working either.

    So is there any other way? I cannot afford another asynchronic request in the form of signal strength request (TSignalStrengthV1) ...

    Do let me know if you are aware of a solution

    Re: No coverage detection

    I see some correlation between the lack of signal and TNetworkInfoV1 iAreaKnown value.

    What is the meaning of this variable? There doesn't seem to be much about it in the documentation...
