  2. Add an AccountUpdated event handler.

  3. Invoke Start() on the watcher.

  4. Query the HasNetworkChanged property of the MobileBroadbandAccountUpdatedEventArgs object in the AccountUpdated event handler.

  5. If the network has changed, query the CurrentNetwork property for the current network object.
