Default Server Push based on phone number

Please Login to Remove!


I would like to know how to push content to blackberry devices based on the cellphone number. I read the Blackberry application developer guide and it gives an example using the email address and MDS , but i would like to do something similar to that with their cell phone number.

Pls let know how this can be achieved.

Thanks for the help

You can use the PIN of the BB (there's example C# code on RIM's site that does that). The problem with the SIM phone number is that it isn't tied to a Blackberry.

I guess that you could do it programmatically by reading the PIN or email for the SIM that you're interested in and then using that to do the push - but you'd be relying on the SIM phone number being available and up to date on the BES.
