    i have a doubt.The cell tower information will be read by a mobile through some port before it displays it on the screen.Can we write a java program that reads this particular string ?and is that port common to all the mobiles?if not .......can we write the common java application that runs on all operating systems by just changing the port number????

    In j2ME, System information/network info you can get by use of System.getProperty ..... As such there is no information available ....System.getProprty from which port retrieve infomation...... .
