    Unhappy System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.lac")

    I'm going crazy, it returns null value.
    I do not understand why I can get everything except the lac!

    Sto impazzendo. Mi restituisce null.
    Non capisco perchè posso ricavare tutto tranne la lac!
    public void startApp() {
    form = new Form("Getting Data");
    cell_id = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.cellid");
    mcc = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.countrycode");
    mnc = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.networkid");
    lac = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.lac");
    form.append("cell id: " + S60_cell_id);
    form.append("lac: " + lac);
    form.append("mcc: " + mcc);
    form.append("mnc: " + mnc);
    exitCommand = new Command("Exit", Command.EXIT, 1);

    Thumbs up Re: System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.lac")

    On which device are you trying this?
    Since the below quoted property can only be accessed from Series 40 5th Edition FP1 onwards and if the MIDlet is signed in operator or manufacturer domain,
    for more information you can read the link,
    Thanks with Regards,

    Re: System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.lac")

    Looking at the documentation I found :


    Returns current GSM location area code (LAC) as a string. The SIM card must be inserted and service acquired in order to return a LAC value, otherwise returns null.

    This value applies only to 2G devices.

    On Series 40 devices, this property is available only in the manufacturer or operator domain.

    Symbian Release :
    S60 3rd Edition FP 2

    I'm afraid they didn't place the This value applies only to 2G devices. for nothing
    It might be that it exclusively works on 2G devices, as in ONLY 2G devices that don't have any other connection possibilities (so no 2g and 3g devices)...

    Buona fortuna x il resto !
    Note: please don't send private questions to me, as I don't have time to provide private support. All such questions should be posted on public forums, where I and others can see and answer them.

    I asked the same question after going crazy as I am able to get all data using PyS60 but it did not work in J2ME
