    Determine unique identifier for device from WRT


    Is it possible to determine some ID that could uniquely identify a phone using WRT?, I'm familiar with PhoneGap's Device.uuid object (http://docs.phonegap.com/phonegap_de...ml#device.uuid) that seems to work on every phone apart from Nokia/WRT.

    The reason why I'm asking, is that I am designing an app, that the user gets x amount of credit on startup, but I don't want the user to get
    more credit by uninstalling and re-installing the app. By using a unique id, I could identify the phone, an prevent multiple requests for free 'startup' credit.

    Hope someone can help

    the unique identification would be IMEI, see wiki example on how you can get it: http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ng_IMEI_in_WRT, you could maybe implement a online check on your server for the credits, that way even formatting the device would not re-enable your application.
