Network Info


This application displays information about the phone  and the current network connection.
In addition, it can display  the public (external) IP address/hostname of the device (e.g. if  it is behind a router).

The produced information can then be exported to  the SD card or send via Android messaging.

No ads.

Only goes online to get the public IP via and resolve it.

As it was programmed using the 1.5 SDK, CDMA devices are not  fully supported.

Nothing should go bad, but a few results will  come back as unknown, or with wrong terminology (CID instead of BID, MNC instead of SID, etc.).

Information displayed

  • Device IP and hostname, both private and public.
  • Current mobile Cell and any neighbours, along with their signal strength, location info and type.
  • Information about the current mobile provider (MCC+MNC, current connection, etc.)
  • The Android device unique ID.
  • Full information regarding the WiFi connection (MAC, current SSID  and BSSID, link speed, IP/Netmask, Gateway, DNS and DHCP servers, etc.)
  • Your current location according to Android based on your network neighbours. No GPS is needed.
