Please understand what this tool does and does not do before you rate it. If you are not interested in the esoteric details of how the cellular network works, please do not download this app, it will frustrate you and be a waste of your time. Please check website for details.
I have reports that Verizon now blocks locations. Other providers may do same. Bummer. If your provider blocks, please be considerate and don't downrate the app. Not my fault.
Yes it is a battery hog - it needs to be.
his application is no longer maintained or supported - latest versions of Android and 3G/4G networks may not be compatible. Please look at OpenCellID instead.
