Software to view Tower Name in Windows Mobile

I am using HTC P3400 Windows Mobile.

My Nokia Phone displays Tower name, that helps me know "Where I am"
I would like to have this information display in my Windows Mobile Phone also.

Do you guys know any Windows Mobile Software that can display Mobile Tower name on Today Screen ?

Thanks in Advance

Not sure if this will work - I have tried before and failed but have not tried this article, but fingers crossed (will try in a moment on mine - need to flip the SIM from my iPhone) :

It is probably Country / Mobile Network specific.  I tried it with my Provider and and supposed codes and nothing happened, so hopefully you will have more luck!  The Code may vary depending on your location.  Mine was supposed to be 200, but I tried 50 and 050 and still nothing.
Such is life :-(
But one ray of light - I am now using my Windows Mobile phone not my iPhone :-)

alanhardisty, It's working for me!!!

I followed those instructions as it is. But didn't installed that battery software. Now 'Message from Network' is poping up with correct tower name (location name)

Thanks

Without the software to display tower name on Today screen, it is of no use. As I have S2U2 lock, the message will disappear soon. So let me check the battery software also.
