I want to make an LBS application. I am using Nokia 6600 (S60) based handset and carbide.c++ as an IDE.
I am quite confused about how to get cell id.What are the preliminary steps. I am making an LBS application for mobile users ( using cell id technique )
The main idea of my work is:
A network provider has several hundred radio base stations ( cells) that make up its network. A mobile phone connects to the network using the cell in which it is located. As the mobile moves, it leaves one cell and joins another. The new cell then takes responsibility for connecting the phone to the network.
Every time the cell that "owns" the mobile changes, reads the cell id and location from database and delivers these information to another number through sms.
Kindly explain me in detail how to get cell id please. secondly, for doing this task what are the steps you suggest to follow first.
I hope you understand my point. Kindly gave me some idea to proceed my work.
