    Smile can S60 3rd Edition, FP2 get lac in J2me ?

    Hi ,

    Sorry for my Engish is not good .

    my main question is "can S60 3rd Edition, FP2 get lac in J2me?" ( i already see other discuss in this Forum but still no ideas )

    i use

    cell_id = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.cellid");
    lac = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.lac");
    mcc = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.countrycode");
    mnc = System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.networkid");

    it can get cell_id, mcc, mnc perfectly but lac = NULL

    And i use many S60 3rd Edition, FP2 dervice, many SIM Card ( 2G ) to test, it still not work.
    and when i change to SE dervice to run same source code (just change the System.property) and same SIM Card, it ok.

    I see many discuss about this problem in this Forum, someone say it can get lac in S60 3rd Edition, FP2 dervice, 2G
    "Nokia-specific system properties"

    But in other hand, someone say S60 can not get lac ( just have cell-id, mcc, mcn ...... only no lac )
    "Generic system properties"

    i think many people have same problem about S60 to get lac,

    so, first i want to know is S60 3rd Edition, FP2 , 2G can get lac or not ?

    Re: can S60 3rd Edition, FP2 get lac in J2me ?

    hi all,

    I'm new to this, had a doubt in j2me n i'm using nokia 5230.
    I want to get cellID, MCC ,MNC, LAC and IMEI to display map without using GPS in s60 devices.
    But i get NULL value for LAC n got all the other three.

    I want to know that
    S60 5rd Edition supports LAC or not..?
    In s60 devices, is it possible to display a map without using GPS?
    If LAC value is not possible, then how do i display map.?

    Please suggest me any ideas
    Thanks in advance,

    Kumar, it is probably impossible to retrieve lac information on S60V5 and S60V3 FP2 devices via j2me.
    You can try using Location API but for me it also works very poor without using A-GPS.
