    way to tell what frequency my phone is using

    Is there a piece of software or a menu of some kind that I can use to see what frequency (850 Mhz. or 1900 Mhz.) my phone is connecting on?

    I think PhoNetInfo can do this. You'll have to find a link, I'm not sure the author has an existing homepage anymore.

    Hey thanks for this tip!
    I downloaded it here, you need to sign it either using Open Signed Online or a developer certificate. (If you have a FP1 phone, you might even be able to hack it).

    Like the OP, however, I am interested in the actual band (850/1900 MHz) in use, and I did not find that information here. (I want to find out if getting the international version of the N97, supporting 900/1900/2100 MHz UMTS, will work on AT&T's 3G network in my area...)

    Well, sorry that doesn't display the information. Perhaps PyNetMony does. I'm unsure, but it's a very comprehensive script.

    There is an at&t coverage map that shows the frequencies that they broadcast geographically. So you can find your hometown on the map and see if its 850 or 1900 or both. Its all over google.

    Can anybody tell me if PyNetMony does this or not. I really do not want to go through the trouble of installing python and then this app just to find out it does not give me the info I am looking for.

    UHHHHH, no. AT&T's coverage maps are all over google and none of them show frequencies.

    Yea but, that isn't going to show what frequency 3g is on in any given area.

    Yeah, I'm sorry I was not more specific in stating 3G.

    Aside from that, those maps are very lacking in detail and also the area that I live in is shaded on all the maps.

    zephxiii,
    I live on Long Island and work in Manhattan with semi frequent visits to Atlantic City.

    But I do not think maps will help me since maps are generally not very updated and AT&T is currently in the process of shifting spectrum's from what I understand.

    I didn't think it would be a big deal to find this on the phone. I figured it must be shown in an engineering menu somewhere.

    Its going to be near impossible to say. Everything started out on 1900. on Long Island, it could be either, or both...same with Atlantic City. You need to acquire a fieldtest menu on something, then monitor the channels to really know. Easily done with an 8525 Also, some samsung dumbphones have the capability to even display either 850 or 1900, i'm not sure which ones though.

    How would you go about doing it with a tilt?

    Is it a built in engineering menu or a third party app?

    This type of app has been missing on s60 forever. At least i've never seen it. Maybe there's a new python app somewhere over at symbian-freak, but i havent been there in a while. If it exists anywhere, it would be over there.

    Its too bad cause windows mobile makes this task very easy.
