Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12529) Support default 'cellular' detection into cordova-plugin-network-information for Android
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 23:17:45 GMT


jcesarmobile commented on CB-12529:

Why should we do that?
If we don't know the connection, it should be unknown. 
There are a lot of types of Android devices that don't have cellular connection, and even
phones can work without cellular connection. I don't see the point of making the plugin return
cellular when the type is unknown

> Method getType() : In case of unknown cellular network detected, returned value is TYPE_UNKNOWN
 (equals "unknown" string)
> It seems it is better in this case that returns "cellular" string.
> For this simply add a constant :
>     public static final String TYPE_CELL = "cellular";
> And add a 'else' statement after all 'else if' statements detecting the cellular connection
sub-types :
>                 else {
>                     return TYPE_CELL;
>                 }
