I understand that there are several issues with getting the IMEI code of a phone generically because either such support is unavailable or operator/manufacturer signing is required.
Is there another sort of ID which is accessible generically from J2ME? If not, is there a Nokia-specific approach which will always return the IMEI (or another unique ID) regardless of which domain of code signing? (I will be using code signing from Thawte).
This is for an activation type system so that I can "bind" my MIDlets to a single device (or preferably, but less likely, to the SIM card).
Any help or alternative suggestions for an activation type system would be greatly appreciated. Obviously if I can get an ID which is unique to each handset then this task is straightforward.
