RadioInfo.getMCC() inconsistent between emulators/devices

When running the following code on different emulators I get inconsistent return values:


int nMNC = RadioInfo.getMNC(RadioInfo.getCurrentNetworkIndex());


With the country set to 302 (Canada) I get the following values returned:


  • 8520 (v5.0.0.535) = 302 (hex 0x12e)
  • 8900 (v5.0.0.535) = 302 (hex 0x12e)
  • 9550 (v5.0.0.535) = 770 (hex 0x302)
  • 9630 (v5.0.0.535) = 770 (hex 0x302)
  • 9700 (v5.0.0.535) = 302 (hex 0x12e)


There doesn't seem to be any way to tell whether the API thinks the MCC is HEX or DEC.


For example MCC=520 (hex 0x208), on the 8520/8900/9700 would be Thailand, but on the 9550/9630 it would be France.

Is there anyway to know what the value being returned is?


I'm seeing the same thing on devices.


Thanks in advance,

Re: RadioInfo.getMCC() inconsistent between emulators/devices

Correction, the code should be:

int nMCC = RadioInfo.getMCC(RadioInfo.getCurrentNetworkIndex());

The problem also exists for the MNC as well.
