Getting IMEI from blackberry using MIDP api

I'm running a J2ME app on Blackberry 8100. No RIM APIs are used. Manually I can get the no by pressing *#06#. Does anyone know how to get the IMEI no from the device using MIDP api?
System.getProperty("IMEI") will get the IMEI on motorola devices. How about the Blackberry?

thanks in advance,
RS

There is no standard way of retrieving the IMEI using MIDP. Look for something that works with Blackberry/specific model you're using.

You can at most get the SMSc, details on BT connectitivity, etc ... but not the IMEI.
