    Re: Tower ID detection

    The "tower" is the "cell" = "basestation". And the unique (per operator) identifier for each tower = cell = basestation is the "cell ID". Or am I missing something?

    Yep, the question is about that textual string which is sometimes shown in the device, basically each towers have their own name. Unfortunately, AFAIK, there is no S60 API that could be used for getting it.

    It's available for some (more recent) Nokia devices too.
