    Question Re: Cell information-Cell id & location string

    Hi,
    The same thing I want to get from Symbian v8.0a S60 2nd edition FP2 phones (like Nokia 6630). i want to get the CELL ID using some symbian c++ api, for that Mobinfo lib is needed. just tell me how can i get the cell id from this gsm phone using symbian c++. I have the SDK and thinking which IDE should I use, whether MS Visual Studio or Carbide.c++? Is there any integration to be done between the IDE and SDK so that the APIs can be used while development using c++?

    plz give me some pointers and code snippet to fetch the cell id for this particular type of device...
    regads,

    If I remember right, you would need symbian owned non-public APIs for getting the Cell Id in 2nd edition devices.

    Re: Cell information-Cell id & location string

    Thanks Yucca,
    i have the Mobinfo signed zip file which contains some dlls,libs, headers and some other type of files. Can I use them to develop on S60 2nd ed FP2 Symbian v8.0a phones to get the Cell ID? i am using C++ as the dev language with Carbide IDE. Is it ok or should I use any other IDE...

    Thanks a lot..

    Yes, you can of course use it. Just search for "MobInfo" in this discussion boards. You would end up with having some workable code.

    IDE is just for development. It doesn't have to do with API and etc... You can use Notepad if you wish.
