Simulator network type bug?

When running the 9530 simulator and simulating a GSM type network I anyhow get a network type of CDMA. Have I missunderstood something?


My code is:

boolean cdma = (RadioInfo.getNetworkType() == RadioInfo.NETWORK_CDMA);


 In the simulator under simulate,  Network PropertiesI simulate a GSM netowrk.


The BlackBerry shows:network.PNG







Why does the cdma variable in the code get the value true? I want to simulate a GSM network.

Re: Simulator network type bug?

9530 is a CDMA BlackBerry (that is capable of GSM). Try a 9500 (a GSM only BlackBerry) simulator to see if cdma returns false. If it still returns true then post it in the Issue Tracker else it should be fixed.

Re: Simulator network type bug?

In the 9500 it works fine, but I was of the believe that I could get the 9530 into GSM mode as well. Also, from what I see n the sreen I actually manage, but not from what the network type shows. I guess I just have to stick with 9500.
