    The article says "Note: In Series 40 devices the MIDlet needs to be signed to a manufacturer or operator domain; otherwise the property will be null." I tried this on my phone and indeed got a null value. Does signing the app happen w/ a 3rd party certificate from Verisign, the one that costs several hundred dollars? Is there a way to test it w/o a certificate or install a self-signed certificate on my phone?b

    Same question, 18 months later.

    Is there a way to test CellID (or other location means) on an S40 series in J2ME, without paying for signing?

    Thanks

    The situation has not changed:

    http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...B925CF670.html

    Requires: "Series 40 5th Edition FP 1"

    And even then: "On Series 40 devices, this property is available only in the manufacturer or operator domain."

    The last point also means that regular MIDlet signing by a developer won't be enough; it must be signed by Nokia (manufacturer signing, which Nokia won't do for anything except their own applications that come preinstalled on the phone), or by the network operator (carrier), which means you have to make an agreement with every network operator to sign your app (apps signed by one operator will not work when another operator's SIM card is used in the phone).

    In practical terms. No can do.

    If you switch to targeting Symbian/S60 phones, then the property will work without manufacturer or operator signing on S60 3rd Edition FP 2 based devices, and later (S60 5th Edition, Symbian^3).

    Now in S40 devices you can get Cell Info by capturing CBS message on Channel 50:

    See the Wiki URL : http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ture_Cell_Info
