    Problems in Getting Cell Ids and Signal Strengths

    Hi,
    I am making an application in symbian c++ which can determine the MS position using signal strength in all detected networks with a pathloss formula. i have the needed header(Hwtricks.dll, hwtricks.hpp, etc) to get cell id and signl str, but i can not use the function(ValueL()) to get the those things, the compiler(CBX) said that i didnt have the library hwtricks.lib, can you help me in this problem?

    You are not supposed to move dlls from one SDK to another. And if the SDK vendor does not provide the *.lib with the SDK it can only mean that you are not supposed to use that library.

    Why don't you use official API releases and their documentation? Like the Mobinfo 3rd Party Telephony Library ...

    There is nothing new in your blog post. One thing would be interesting to know though: do you have Nokia's permission to redistribute that header file? If not, please remove it and instead advice your users to use the material advertised by me on post #6. Thank you!
