As of last year we could not acces IMEI through J2ME..
Some vendor smigth have enabled getting the IMEI number by
But that is not portable..
Has anyone in theri experience found a work around that is portable using J2ME...other than the obvious work around of having the user log in each time..
The purpose is to link the J2ME application with either IMEI or some other id that is billiable..

getting the header and the Number via WAP is out because nto every gateway retruns the IMEI number in the headers; I know that the Nokia's gateway does not..
Thanks for any information you may be able to give me..
