Determining the Network

In the BlackBerry project that I am in now we are having the requirement to detect the mobile network the phone is currently in.
Basically in BlackBerry mobile network is uniquely identified by the Mobile Country Code (MCC) and the Mobile Network Code (MNC).
To get these details from your code what you have to do is to call

RadioInfo.getMCC()
and
RadioInfo.getMNC()

These will return the codes in decimal.
You can find a full list of MNC codes of the mobile phone operators and a list of country codes by following the following URLSs to Wikipedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_Network_Code
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_Country_Code

If you need to access the BlackBerry knowledge base article describing the above process you can follow the following link.
