You can use the signalStrengh method from CellularNetworkInfo to get the signal strength.

Thanks for the advise. Do you have any advices concerning call stability (call drops, drop rate, ...)?

That you'd need to calculate within your app based on previous calls.  There isn't a way to know how stable the current call is.  But if that's what you are looking for, you can use the Phone.callUpdated(const bb::system::Call &call) method and check if the CallState is failed when the call ends.
