    I do try to find Cell ID,MNC,MCC and LAC by using GPRSInfo.getCellInfo(). I compiled it with simulator and tried the program on three different Blackberry simulator(BlackBerry 8800-02, 9500 Vodophone, 9630) which I believe that they
    have GPS. Unforunately, all the values seem to equal to 0. I do not think my code is wrong. You can see the code below. Could you please tell me a way to see exact values of Cell ID, MNC, MCC and LAC? Do I need to find a real Blackberry telephone
    (which does support GPS) ? I can'T do it by using simulators? I would be so glad if you can assist me. Thank you in advance.

    The code that I use to find out Cell ID, MNC, MCC and LAC:

       int CellId=GPRSInfo.getCellInfo().getCellId();
            int LAC=GPRSInfo.getCellInfo().getLAC();
            int MCC=GPRSInfo.getCellInfo().getMCC();
           int MNC=GPRSInfo.getCellInfo().getMNC();
           String CellId1=Integer.toString(CellId);
           String LAC1=Integer.toString(LAC);
           String MCC1=Integer.toString(MCC);
           String MNC1=Integer.toString(MNC);
           String CellId2 = System.getProperty("CellID");
           String LAC2 = System.getProperty("LocAreaCode");
            add(new RichTextField("Hello World!"));
            add(new RichTextField("Cell ID is="+CellId1));
            add(new RichTextField("LAC1 is="+LAC1));
            add(new RichTextField("MCC1 is="+MCC1));
            add(new RichTextField("MNC1 is="+MNC1));
            add(new RichTextField("MNC is="+MNC));
            add(new RichTextField("Cell ID2 is="+CellId2));
            add(new RichTextField("LAC2 is="+LAC2));

    Ahh, never mind... You are going after GPRS info not GPS info.

    GPS has nothing to do with the info you are trying to get. The info is provided by the GSM operator, so you will need a real device to test on. And note that it will work with a GSM carrier, if you try with a CDMA one the results may vary

    And on the side note - it is worth checking the official blackberry dev forums (unfortunately I still cannot paste links, but you can just search for it )
