We need access to IMEI number for Mobile phones on J2ME MIDP 2.0 application. The search results says it is not possible but is there any work around to access IMEI?

Hello there,

As far as I know it's not in MIDP 1 or 2 but it depends on the device and manufacturer. Try these:

Sony Ericsson



Nokia is acessible only when using Symbian/Series 60 C++, I guess.

Hi ,
I'm looking for a way to identify a J2ME MIDlet and the cellphone where this MIDlet is installed.
I know that some phones like Nokia and siemens give the possibility to get the IMEI code using "system.getproperty(com.siemens.imei)" and something like for Nokia.

I need a way to identify every kind of cellphone, not only Nokia and Siemens. So now my question:

API Bluetooth for J2ME are available. Every bluetooth device has its own Unique Idenfier Code(48bit). Can i get this code of 48 bit from my MIDlet?
There is any other unique code (like Mac Address) i can get using my MIDlet?
