Default Getting Cell Id

Please Login to Remove!


Appologies if this is posted in the wrong place- but I'm a newbie!

I am writing an application that requires the following information:
Cellid, LAc, BSIC and RSSI
which I retreive in the folowing way:

import net.rim.device.api.system.GPRSInfo;

Integer.toString(GPRSInfo.getCellInfo().getCellId( )

However, when I run it on the BlackBerry 9800 Simulator, running in Eclipse Helios, I get the following error:


I've set the IT Policy to Allow Phone and Application Control to allow all (and set Phone and Location (GPS) to allow.

Many thanks in advance!

Sounds like you have your simulator set to run in secure mode (which emulates the security of an acual commericial device). Applications must be signed to access controlled API calls on a secure mode "device". Try setting the simulator to non-secure, or signing your applicaiton.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
