    Cell-id for S40

    Hi

    After reading:

    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu..._ID_in_Java_ME

    S40 devices return cell-id by property "Cell-ID" BUT
    it works only for signed midlet by Nokia or operator.

    As I know Nokia signs each Midlet before put it in Ovi Store.
    It means that apk. will have access to this property after signing by Nokia ?

    I would like to create application for S40 devices which uses cell-id to
    track some objects on the map.

    Of course theres is API Location (Jsr-179) but probably none S40 device
    has GPS on the board. It needs to be supported by external device.

    Regards

    Nokia sign for Ovi Store is not in manufacturer domain, but its just a 3rd party trusted app domain - which will not give cell -id.
    Try on latest S40 devices that have on device GPS
