I did quite a bit of looking on the Play Store and only found one app that identifies cell tower locations, and it's a paid for, kinda pricy app. I'm looking for a free download. This isn't a complex concept which I won't pay for the app. However, if a known app exists, please send me a recommendation. Thanks!
In my android app I have to gather a lot of information regarding the cell tower
like Network name, Network code etc etc but before I start capturing all those
things I want to make sure that a cell tower connections exists
i.e. GSM or CDMA, but I want to ensure that there is a connection. Otherwise
I would just like to return.
For example, as we do it in case of Wi Fi.
My Location History said that I am 10 different place, So I would like to search my location and map the cell tower, put my location history to the cell tower map in a different color just to see if this is correct. Just to prove my Husband wrong... Thanks for help
How to find nearest cell tower location Or the location of the tower is connected to؟
I need to find the nearest cell tower to my current location. I found my current location using GPS, but I need to get the location of the nearest tower to me.
Is there anyway to force your phone to use a certain tower? I'm on an train near DC and an connected to a tower in Houston TX... Getting better speeds than when I'm home and am connected to Nearest server. I'm mobile and haven't been able to find this in answers. I connected to a closet tower and had mediocre speeds.
Can you guys tell me if there might be a setting that would cause my phone to use cell towers for data as opposed to WiFi even when I'm connected to WiFi or does the phone always, no matter what, use the WiFi when it's connected? Reason I ask is because it seems like my Turbo is going through data like crazy! I normally use .6 to .7gb per month and I'm already at .7 in 10 days.
A stingray is a false cell phone tower that can force phones in a geographical area to connect to it. Once these devices connect, the stingray can be used to either hone in on the targets location or, with some models, actually eavesdrop on conversations, text messages, and web browser activity.
