How to get LAC and MNC values for iDEN network?

Hi All,


I am using google's service to retrieve the location from the cell id in which I have to pass the cell id, mcc,mnc and lac.


My app is running fine for network type GPRS and CDMA.


But for iDEN network i am always getting mcc, mnc and lac value null while using GPRSInfo class to retrieve them.


I am fetching cell id by :



Can anyone tell me how to get other 3 values on iDEN?


I am testing on Device Anywhere. 8350i Sprint Nextel device.

I am in the same situation with the other 3 values (mcc, mnc, lac) over iDEN network (8350i), do you find any solution?
