Smile Does BB browser send MSISDN?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

As stated in my title, does BB browser send MSISDN? If so, will carriers filter it out?

I've never seen MSISDN info in the browser headers. Seems like this would be a breach of security.

The User-Agent header *does* identify that the device is a blackberry, and includes the device model and OS level.

Why do you ask?

Yes. As said, it shouldn't send the msisdn, just the berry and model number.... Dealing with a stolen berry?
