    Hi all,

    I'm developing an application to read signal strength of 3G, GSM, Wifi.

    Is there any classes that provides us with the RSSI of 3G signal and GSM signal?

    The WifiManager Class provides the RSSI for wifi, but I can't find any for 3G and GSM. If there is no classes provided, is it difficult to start from scratch? Can anyone point me a direction?

    Thanks.

    There is an app call "Cell Finder" it gives you all kinds of info on the network cell tower you are currently connected to...

    Network operator,
    MCC / MNC
    CELL ID
    CELL LAC
    SIGNAL STRENGTH
    DIRECTION (bearing)
    DISTANCE

    this in a satellite view ... and will update as you move from cell to cell

    You could contact the dev of this app ... and probably get alot of insight

    "CellFinder" is in the App Market ... open market app and then immediately do a search on the word 'cell' you will then get a listing

    Keep us posted to you progress

    I just found out that the class android.telephony.PhoneStateListener has support for this purpose.

    As you can tell this community isn't exactly at the right level to be asking those sort of questions. If you want more information from coders and engineers you should come on over to xda-devs.com, I'm really interested to see what kind of progress you've made on your app.

    I made an app to do just this called "Signals Widget". Maybe something like what you're looking for...

    I am an entrepreneur at the telecom test & measurement solutions market. I am looking for a developer partner to investigate together a possible solution for mobile operators. I need exactly the type of measurements you indicated above and some additional capabilities. Please let me know if you are interested.
    Best regards,
    Kfir
