Default 3 questions related to the GlobalEventListener and application permissions on BIS

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,
Is there a certain application permission that must be set to 'Allow', before being able to use the "GlobalEventListener" api, and having this listeners' method "eventOccured(..)" called upon global events?

I listen for an incoming call, and know that a global event is being sent upon such a happening. This works well on one device (using GPRS network), but it seems not to on another (using CDMA network).

When in general an application permission is set on the BB device, which uses a BIS internet connection, is it possible that such a permission is overruled by a setting configured on the BIS server? (I understand this is possible for applications using BES, but how about applications using BIS?)

Finally, does anyone know how to find out which global event GUID's are defined by for instance the VoiceApp. Obviously, there should be a list of these such that developers can find out what is possible when interacting with a RIM application such as the VoiceApp. Still, I am unable to find anything on this online.

RE Finding global event GUIDs: It seems to be mostly a process of experimentation. Use System.out.println to send trace output to the debugger (using a breakpoint can cause it to miss events). Of course, as long as RIM doesn't document them, there's no guarantee they'll stay the same between devices and OS versions.
