    Possible to Retrieve CellId on a S60/Symbian with a self signed app ?

    Hey,

    I need to retrieve the Cell Id. I see that Qt and Symbian C++ examples require ReadDeviceData capability. Does this capability require the application to be signed for all platfrms? Is there a way to retrieve this info with a self-signed app?

    The application requires capability: ReadUserData ReadDeviceData Location

    Refer the link:
    http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...ith_CTelephony

    For 3rd Edition Devices "Location" Capability is not part of Self Signed Capabilties.
    So the Location Capability is removed during the SISX creation.(as seen from the logs).
    If you dont have your own certificates you can use Symbian Signed "Open Signed Online" to sign the SIS file for a speciific IMEI.
    Reference : https://www.symbiansigned.com/app/pa...ignedOnline.do

    Hope this will help you

    Actually, The problem could be easily checked by looking into the SDK docs, and if you check for CTelephony::GetCurrentNetworkInfo documentation, you see that it does really require ReadUserData ReadDeviceData Location, so you do need them all.

    As mentioned the Location would be included in self-signable capabilities starting from 3rd ed FP2, however, ReadDeviceData is not, thus you can not do it with self-signed apps. Anyway, if you were thinking of using this with positioning, you should then instead use real positioning APIs, since they generally only require the Location capability, which would allow you to use them with self-signed application (starting from 3rd ed FP2)
