# Thread: [moved] distance from cellid

1. ## [moved] distance from cellid

Does anyone now how can calculate the distance from the cell id?
May be with the signal strength?
Does anyway knows a formula to convert signal strength to distance?
What the signal strength(GetSignalStrength)number represent?
Be glad if anyone can clarify me this point.
Thanks
Jose
