    CellId or LAC

    Hello,
    How is it possible to get the CellId or the LAC of the gsm network from a midlet application ? if not, is it possible to get from the sim card ?

    Does someone have some examples of code ?

    Regards

    Either way it isn't possible on Nokia handsets.

    you can get the cell-id
    using the

    System.getProperty("Cell-ID");
    it will return the cell id.

    Re: CellId or LAC

    umesh.dumaniya, do you realize that you are replying to an a question that was asked over 7 years ago, and with a partially incorrect/wrong answer?

    For completeness' sake, here's a reference to the Nokia documentation about this:

    Nokia-specific system properties: http://library.forum.nokia.com/index...B925CF670.html


    com.nokia.mid.cellid

    On 2G devices, returns identity of the cell from which a mobile telephony call was made or received.

    On 3G devices, returns UC-ID (UTRAN ID) value, which is a combination of Radio Network Controller ID (RNC-ID) and cell ID.

    On Symbian devices this property is available for all applications. From JRT 2.1 onwards this property is bound to the Location function group. Security prompting behaves according to Location function group settings.

    On Series 40 devices, this property is available only in the manufacturer and operator domains.


    com.nokia.mid.lac:

    Returns current GSM location area code (LAC) as a string. The SIM card must be inserted and service acquired in order to return a LAC value, otherwise returns null.

    This value applies only to 2G devices.

    On Series 40 devices, this property is available only in the manufacturer and operator domains.
