Can I use Mobile Broadband api to get Cellid of Mobile networks,such as 3G card?

    Question

  • Hi 

    I want to get CELLID and LAC in Windows 8, and I can get them through serial port by using AT command. There is 

    IMbnDeviceService: etCommand method in Mobile Broadband API. And Can I use it to send an command to get LAC and CELLID just like using AT command.

    If ok, how to set the parameters of setcommand().
    If not, is there any other way to get LAC and CELLID in Windows 8 without serial port ?

  • Marry,

    Only mobile broadband operators can call the Mobile Broadband APIs from a Metro style app.
