  • How does one determine the home operator/network (e.g. AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc.) on both GSM and CDMA phones? By home operator I don't mean the operator of the current cell tower. I mean the operator that the customer pays their bill to. The name of this operator is normally quite obvious to anyone that uses the phone, but it is not obvious to me how a mobile application running on the phone determines this. On GSM phones I know I can use RIL_GetUserIdentity() to get the IMSI and then extract the first 6 digits, but this does not work reliably (at all?) on CMDA phones. Plus it requires me to maintain a database that maps MCC/MNC to operator. Please help.
