Could you tell me for which generation you want this information?
i mean either for 2G or 3G or 4G ?
Actually it could be anything. I asked generally what are the tasks for Mobile in Idle mode. Just be general. I would be thankful.

UE which is GSM/UMTS/LTE capable, when it is powered ON for first time which RAT will be preferred and
which RAT will be preferred at subsequent power ON or coming back to coverage from no service?

When UE is powered on, it first scans for all supported RF channels. And then list the channels whose RSSI is greater than a set threshold. For all cells satisfying this criteria, the PSS, SSS detection-> PCFICH -> MIB detection is done.
I would like to understand the term "preferred Rat" to camp on to a cell. How/when does the UE gets this information? Is this a stored info from USIM .. or from somewhere else?
