Cell tower pick

A decision block that lets the user choose nearby cellular towers.

The fiber will pause until the user has chosen one or more cell towers, cancelled the dialog or the timeout expired.

Cell format

A cell is text that begins with a network type followed by one or more optional hexdecimal properties separated by colon:

NetworkPropertiesExample
CDMASID:NID:BIDcdma:43ad:5f3:2da
GSMLAC:RNC:CIDgsm:ca::427
LTETAC:CI:PCIlte:ca:ca:427
WCDMALAC:CIDwcdma:54ae:3d57
UMTSPSCumts:503

Note! Finding nearby cells will be slow for devices (Samsung) that doesn’t scan neighboring, unconnected, cell towers.
