    Question about JAVA and phone's "engineering mode".

    Hi everyone.

    I have quite specific question about possibility to create a midlet
    that "fetches" info from phone's internals in so called "engineering
    mode" - it basicly contains network info, network parameters like
    cell ID, distance from station, connection quality and so on.

    Our engineers need such application when doing their on-field
    maintenance tasks.

    Are there any API for that purpose ? Does the standard API
    allow execute AT commands ?

    Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,

    Java won't help you too much. There are no standard ways to access all that information, or to execute AT commands.
    There are a few phones (no Nokias that I know of, I've seen it on Motorola iDEN), that have extension APIs to allow you to get that information.
    Are you targeting any particular device?

    Hi.

    > Are you targeting any particular device?

    No. Actually, the phone's selection would be based on
    availability of such extension API. Do you know makes,
    phone models that have such API ?

    Not any particular model, but AFAIK the Motorola iDEN models have the most support for this. You can check the specifics on their developer portal.
