    Question How to get Cell ID for S60 2nd ed. FP2 mobile phones?

    Hi,
    I want to get the CellID(if possible LAC,MCC and MNC) from my nokia 6630 mobile which is having S60 2 ed. FP2 development platfrm. I tried with S60 3rd ed FP2 SDK with J2ME, but the actual result did not come for this device.

    Can anyone plz tell me which C++ APIs and library should I use to the location info of this type of phone? The phone is a GSM phone having no GPRS or GPS connection.In J2ME i got the CELL ID from mobile System.getProperty() method..now I want to get this by using c++ api. Does those C++ API support for future editions of mobiles? I mean, if i develop that application which shows the Cell ID when run on the phone, that application should also run successfully for higher edition series phones..

    plz tell me which development tools/SDks shall i use for this type of app (for Nokia phones only) and where can I get those?

    plz provide me with some code snippets and links...

    I searched this forum n found lot of info abt CELL ID bt confused which library/API to use for this application devmnt. My app will run on the phone and show the CeLL ID on the phone screen. This thing I achieved in J2ME using J2ME MIDlet APIs. the same I want with C++ for Nokia phones...
    Any doubts plz ask me...

    thanks for all the helping minds..

    In Symbian.C++ you can try using CTelephony for 3rd Edition and and by using MobInfo in Pre-v3.x SDKs

    if you want to develop for 6630 which is a S60 2nd Edition, Feature Pack 2 you can find the corresponding SDK in http://www.forum.nokia.com/info/sw.n...16-3.0-mr.html.

    Hi,

    For Symbian OS 7.2 FP2 use etel.h and RBasicGsmPhone class with Mobiinfo.dll, if i m right, this EtelbGsm.h now is private. If you acces this API the get Location definitely.


    and for OS 9.0 use CTelephony, that is on SDK help, search in SDK help of S60 3rd sdk.
    Regards,
    Amit

    Thumbs up Re: How to get Cell ID for S60 2nd ed. FP2 mobile phones?

    You install FP2 sdk in your PC, go to that derive ahere u install this SDK, seaech etel.h and etelbgsm.h, if you find then read SDK help for how to use that, for getting network info RBasicGsmPhone class have function getnetworkinfo(), that gives Mobile Country code, network area code and etc.

    If you do not found the apply for symbian partnering because this etelbgsm.h is published by symbian Ltd.

    Search in SDK RBasicGsmPhone also you will get some info if this is public.

    Amit

    No. They are not. On the first action, you would need etelggsm.h and certain libraries which are not part of the Public SDK.

    You should use MobInfo API instead which is publicly available 3rd party API.

    Check this link: https://developer.symbian.com/wiki/d...stem+libraries

    Find out the keyword "MobInfo" on Discussion Boards, you would get enough good results to work with.

    Hi Amit,
    I just installed the S60 2nd ed FP2 SDK and in its include directory i found only etel.h, bt i did not find the etelbgsm.h file there..where can I find this file? I searched in google bt in vain...also do I have to integarte the SDK with the IDE i use (like MS VS 2005 or Carbide.c++)? can Carbide.c++ IDE be used for 2nd edition phones development or it only supports for S60 3rd ed. phones?

    I have the Mobinfo library and dlls which i got as a zip. shall i use them to get the Cell ID along with the etelbgsm.h files...

    please give me reply in line with my questions...how can run my app on phone after testing with emulator? which files should i have to create to run a simple app on phone?

    in jave you just copy JAR/JAD files to install folder on phone and run that Midlet app on phone and the app will start...what is the similar thing i hav to do if i use C++ using this S60 2nd ed. SDK for Nokia 6630..?

    the questions are many but i believe you can give me right infos.

    plz bear with me..
    thanks for the quick support....

    hi,

    I never used carbide for 2nd sdk, i used codewarrior ide for that, EtelBgsm.h is not public, so take help from symbian partnering req..., You havr Mobiinfo.dll, this dll will go with your application when u install.

    For install application make a sis file, for this search in SDK help, PKG and sis file.

    Firstaly u will create a PKG file that have all your exe and resource file in it and also Mobiinfo.dll, and now make sis file from tool makesis, and install in your handset.

    Search in wikki, how to make sis file and pkg file.

    One thing search in your sdk etel3rdparty.h, this is another API for getting phone status, but this in on 3rd sdk.
    Regards,
    Amit
