Talk:How to get IMEI in Java ME

From Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

One more possible value for Motorola phones: System.getProperty("com.motorola.IMEI" );

From my side, 100% working values that has been checked on real mobile devices is:

Not working in N5000 and N5610.... the signed and the not signed..

Me is not working too. I have signed application with my certificate from VeriSign.

So now I know how to get the IMEI. I wonder why there are restriction on getting it. Aren't there instruction how to get it with codes on manufactures websites?--warjan 21:24, 4 September 2009 (UTC)

Comment by Forum Nokia: This article states that "On Series 40 phones this requires that your MIDlet is signed to either operator or manufacturer domain, and this is only available in Series 40 3rd Edition, FP1 devices and newer."

This means that 3rd party certificates like Thawte and Verisign cannot be used as these certificates do not sign Java applications to operator or manufacturer domain.

To get a Java application signed into operator or manufacturer domain, close collaboration with those parties is required as precondition. (Source: Java Security Domains)

This was written in 2007, so there is a good chance that the author is not still watching it. If the instructions in Getting IMEI and IMSI in Java ME do not work I suggest you try on the Discussion boards. Please update this article if you find a solution.
