Default BlackBerry API for Cell Triangulation

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,

I am wondering if any of you know BlackBerry API to get the location info based on cell triangulation instead of GPS?

Any help is appreciated.

There isn't one.

You'll need to find a web service that provides this info and call out t it.

I really would like to see this kind of web service
Well, I am just being sarcastic.
I donxxx8217;t think it is possible to write such web service.

I didn't suggest writing one, I suggested finding/using one.

For example, Google has such as service. There are others, I'm certain.
