    Hi,

    Judging by this thread it is not currently possible to access the cell name.

    You can only get the cell id - which is a specific number for a specific cell location and is provided by the network. So you cannot get the location name using the location module.

    This is known as the CELL INFO DISPLAY.

    AFAIK, Currently there are no extensions and libraries which allow you to use that in Python for S60.

    However you could work on a native extension of accomplishing that in C++.

    I understand.

    But even if you get this information. Its from the Network operator.

    My network operator -> Vodafone -> uses it for broadcasting advertisements too!
