    Exclamation attaching application with mobile

    i want to know in how many ways we can uniquely connect our application with mobile phone apart from getting IMEI number of the mobile phone , actually i have to make sure that a only correct person uses application , i have also come to know about a banking application which becomes disabled when other SIM is inserted in the mobile phone .

    kindly discuss
    thanks and regards

    Then you need a user name and password, validated by a server.

    "Know", or "hear"? Have you seen it?

    Some devices (some Sharp devices, if I remember) automatically disable applications installed with one SIM card installed, when the SIM card is changed.

    is there a way to get the SIM ID via properties, or perhaps you can make your application to fit a specific phone number since the number represent the SIM in a way, I mean it makes sense that the person's which downloaded and installed the application has that specific phone number...
    Thanks,

    Things like the phone number or IMEI number fall into the category of information that:

    1. Many devices will not tell you.

    2. Some devices will tell you, but only if your application is manufacturer or operator signed.

    3. Devices that will tell you (signed or otherwise), will tell you through some device-specific method, because there is no standard.

    I guess the real question is: what are we trying to achieve? Is this intended as some copy-protection concept? Or is it for data-protection?
