    [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
