Cannot use IDENInfo.IDENCellInfo.getCellInfo()

When the following is run, the simulator/ device both crashes (No SIM card inserted)


IDENInfo.IDENCellInfo info=IDENInfo.getCellInfo(); //or below, same effect //IDENCellInfo info=IDENInfo.getCellInfo(); ms.add(new RichTextField("LLA"+info.getLLAId())); ms.add(new RichTextField("CellId"+info.getCellId()));

Simulator (JDE 4.3.0):

An unsupported API was called: RadioEngGetInfo

(However, if I "ignore all DE372s" on the simulator, I can see the CellId and LLA fine)


Device (v4.3.072):

The IDENInfo class should only be used on BlackBerry models that operate on the iDEN network.  Please also have a look at CDMAInfo, GPRSInfo and WLANInfo, which provide similar information for the other networks.
