Google Nexus One Field Test Mode

It is a bad news that Nexus One doesn't come with a decent default netmonitor function like iPhone or symbian phones. I don't have Nexus One with me. When I played my friend's one with code *#*#4636#*#* , it only shows you the cell serving cell id.

There is one application called "Netmonitor" in Android Market provides limited engineering mode. Here is the description from Android Market:

----- Description from Android Market: -----
Monitor GSM network; the info about current and neighboring cells (Cell ID, LAC, rf signal strength); a custom database with the info on cells; switches between cells in a log and on a map; saving log in a file

* tested on Hero, Magic, Milestone; no neighborings on Samsung Spica & Galaxy
* currently no CDMA support

was developed for Android by parizene

Package name : com.parizene.netmonitor

----- Description from the developer: ------
Program for monitoring GSM network of the mobile operator.
It shows the information about current and neighboring cells (Cell ID, LAC, signal strength).
You can also use a custom database with the information on cells.
Shows switches between cells in a log (saving log in a file) and on a map (if there are coordinates for them in google's database).

* Currently there is no CDMA support.
* It was tested only on HTC Hero & HTC Magic (GSM).

There is a better app for Android called RF Signal Tracker.
Thera are 2 versions for Donut and Eclair.

Just a clarification.

the data returned is it for the same operator?

how about there are multiple operators. How do we distinguish them?

The app should only display one network only and it depends on the network of the SIM.
