Area location of user

Is there any way in Blackberry to locate the area of the user in case of both gsm and cdma networks? I am able to retrieve the country code from the imsi number as returned by the api, however need some insights into identifying the area location of user while roaming and when user is in home network. For eg. if the country is USA I need to know which region user is located viz. New york, Chicago, Texas etc. Is this possible? Any help appreciated.

Re: Area location of user

You could implement a GeoCoding Engine to determine the address/location based on the Latitude and Longitude provided. I'm not sure exactly how to accomplish this, mind you, but it's something to look into.


Hope that helps,
