Re: Want to know some details about Bluetooth,Cell Tower IDS and WIFI Networks.

The DiscoveryAgent class can be used to search for nearby Bluetooth devices.


The RadioInfo class can be used to obtain information about the cell tower the BlackBerry handheld is currently connected to.


There is no API to search for Wi-Fi networks.  The user will need to configure the Wi-Fi network on their device before an application can connect over it.
