    Busy, dropped call GSM network error detection

    Hi there,

    I am using :

    - Nokia S60 SDK 2.0
    - Nokia 6600

    I would like to capture different events/errors during outgoing call. For example if the phone I am calling is busy, or during call it gets dropped or blocked etc.

    I saw that there are some GSM error codes defined in Etel.h :


    What might be interesting in these kind of cases would probably be these errors to capture for blocked call, dropped call, busy call etc:


    KErrGsmMMNoSuitableCellsInArea -4143
    KErrGsmMMNetworkFailure -4145
    KErrGsmMMMacFailure -4148
    KErrGsmMMSynchFailure -4149
    KErrGsmMMCongestion -4150

    KErrGsmMMUnspecifiedProtocolError -4239
    KErrGsmCCNoRouteToTransitNetwork -4258
    KErrGsmCCNoRouteToDestination -4259

    KErrGsmCCNoChannelAvailable -4290
    KErrGsmCCNetworkOutOfOrder -4294
    KErrGsmCCTemporaryFailure -4297
    KErrGsmCCSwitchingEquipmentCongestion -4298

    But when I use following classes (from Etel.h):

    class RTelServer;
    class RPhone;
    class RLine;
    class RCall

    And capture the outgoing call events in my RunL() with activating the observation with following type of functions:

    iLine.NotifyCallAdded(iStatus, iName);
    iLine.NotifyCallAdded(iStatus, iName);
    iCall.NotifyStatusChange(iStatus, iCallStatus);

    Those only Events that I get back in my RunL() are below enumerations defined in ETEL:


    My guess is that S60 is doing some mapping of GSM errors to these events. So I need probably to go directly via ETEL server to be able to capture GSM errors I want.

    So my question:

    a. Anybody knows how to connect to ETEL server (using public SDK and available ETEL.h in phone (or if special Etel.h is needed ? ).

    b. After connecting to ETEL server which function do I need to call and put myself as observer too ?

    c. Can I be sure that S60 has implemented those GSM errors mentioned above or it's not sure ?

    d. Once I am active as observer do I get these errors in my iStatus in RunL() when the event (busy , blocked etc) happens or do I need to call another Etel API to get access to the error case (enumeration) which one ?

    e. If you have a working example code, that you can post here or via email, I would appreciate it.
