Get GSM Cell name

Hi, I want to get the GSM Cell name (approx. location) of the device and don't want to use GPS.I have managed to get CellID using PhoneInfo, but failed to get the cell name or cell description. Can someone guide me on how to do this.

Re: Get GSM Cell name

What BlackBerry Smartphone model and BlackBerry handheld software version are you testing on?  You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.

 

Can you elaborate on what is failing?  What line(s) of code are not working?  Is an exception being thrown?  If so, what is it?
