that information is not available to the phone, so it's not available to you.

I mean that i want to know how to get  the cell properties like CELLID , LAC , network signal or channel , napper signals or channels and more info. about the cell

I use System.getProperty() method and get the cell id but the others return null ( like the local area code )

is there any code can help me to get the LAC and (network or cell) signal and there nappers.

Try: System.getProperty("com.nokia.mid.lac")
      
Only works on:
S60 3rd Edition FP 2
Series 40 5th Edition FP 1 or later.

"Returns current GSM location area code (LAC) as a string. The SIM card must be inserted and service acquired in order to return a LAC value, otherwise returns null."
