Femto Widget Pro

Femto Widget Pro


Femtocells are small personal cellular mobile basestations installed in homes and connected to your broadband connection to improve your indoor cell phone coverage.

Most cell phones are unable to indicate when they are on the Femtocell.

This Widget detects Femtocells by looking at the Location Area Code (LAC) received by the mobile. The range of LAC used is different for each operator so set this to the values you see when you know you are on a Femto Cell.

Suggestions Would be good that from the phone menu one could click on the lac displayed to set that to the femto. Still needs a bit more UI polish, the log good
