Sometimes it would be sweet to know which mobile network operator the phone is using.

Well since there's no direct way to get this information we can do the following:

If the phone supports WMA there should be a system property "wireless.messaging.sms.smsc". By knowing the used SMSC we can guess which mobile network operator is used:

The following should get the SMSC:

String smsc = System.getProperty("wireless.messaging.sms.smsc");
Then "smsc" containst the SMSC as a String.

Now all you have to know is which operator uses which SMSC.

A list of SMSCs can be found here: >>
