Simulator is the electronic network simulation equipment or a base station equipment for CDMA network/CDMA mobile phones and it is CISCO programmed.It helps in latching home network without roaming services and can make VOICE,SMS,DATA calls especially where there is no roaming facility to test the handset. The CDMA Frequency like 800/900,1800/1900 which do not support in Asia and Europe,can make them live! with the help of this Simulator, the highest capacity of the simulator depends of the manufacturer of the box, may be up to 2400-MHz. It has to be configured both in the box as well as in mobile phones. As per the box capacity it can connect only limited count of mobile phones at one network within a range of 10 meters. This was just brief...

Emulator is a software to test mobile application without a live handset.

8 :: How to know , which are the bands (850,900,1800,1900) a mobile device supports?

The genrals bands supported by phone are

UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA devices operate in the UMTS frequency
bands 800/850/1900/2100 or 850/1700/1900/2100 MHz:

2100 (downlink) / 1900 (uplink) for Europe, Africa,
Australia, New Zealand, Asia (including South Korea and
Japan) and Brazil (usually referred simply as UMTS2100)
1900 for North and South America
2100 (downlink) / 1700 (uplink) for T-Mobile USA and
others, called AWS Band (usually referred simply as
UMTS1700)
900 for Australia (Optus and Vodafone Australia in rural
areas) and in the future in countries that currently use
GSM900
850 for North and South America, Australia (NextG), New
Zealand (Telecom)
800 for Japan (NTT DoCoMo in rural areas)
Note that being UMTS / HSDPA / HSUPA quad band doesn't mean
that phone is a GSM / GPRS / EDGE quad band. However nearly
all HSUPA quad band devices are EDGE quad band too.

Five and Six band phones (800/850/900/1700/1900/2100) are
possible but none have been announced.



1st way to find: go to UI settings of BAND SETTING and
check the bands avaliable to select which gives the details
about the bands supported byy the phone.

2nd way to find: if there is no options to view the band
settings then
we can connect the phone to the simultor and check if the
phone if phone latches to the network at that band.

as there are hardly 10 bands which a phone can support
using that we can ckeck the bands supported by the phone
with the help of simulator.


3rd way to find:
go to QXDM -> static message (there is a hot key for that,
but i dont recollect), go to View->and check for static
message. There you should be able to check the bands which
mobile device supports.


and there are many other ways by which we can check the
band settings.
