Which cell site is your UK EE BlackBerry roaming on? Use the secret code to help give you an indication

Body: 

ee

You may remember from late last month that we told UK BlackBerry users who are on either Orange or T-Mobile that their network provider name would switch at some point on their BlackBerry to EE. For those of you that are not aware Orange and T-Mobile are owned by the same company who have recently been re-branded from Everything Everywhere to plain old EE.

Just today I got a text message from Orange telling me that when I reboot my device I would then have the new EE name on my phone instead of the current Orange one. So I switched my mobile network off and on again and hey pesto there it was - EE.

But then one thing struck me. Because Orange and T-Mobile share cell sites - as a customer of either network you automatically roam onto the cell tower that is emitting the strongest signal. Being a bit of a geek I like to know which one I am on and up until now it has been easy to see. Orange BlackBerry customers phones will show 'Orange -T-Mobile' if roaming on a T-Mobile mast and vice versa for T-Mobile customers. However, now with my BlackBerry just showing EE as the network provider I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to see which cell site I was on.
