We need to authenticate a user; Is there a way to retrieve MSISDN or SIM ID of the handsets using iPhone SDK?

Thanks.

How will that authenticate them above just them creating a username and password. Personally, I hope you can't get that information because it is private to me, and I don't want anyone to get mine. So if it is private to me, I am sure Apple things it is private and would close it off to the SDK.

Good Luck

Mark: thanks for your reply.
We need something else(other than username-password) to identify a user.

As regards MSISDN, google pointed to a thread which suggested this:



to identify a Handset; but with a caveat: this simply identifies the device, not the user(Echoing what you've said ).

A few google searches later, I found something called ASID(Anonymous Subscriber ID), which some of the operators already use to identify a user. Maybe, we can use something like that.

Haven't decided anything yet; this is still open...
