Acquire IMEI for Nokia X

The Featured Discussion Board Post this week is Acquire IMEI for Nokia X started by myrth.

Myrth has a query regarding the Nokia X, which is a dual SIM card device. He wants to know if it would have two different International Mobile Station Equipment Identity (IMEI) as a result of the TelephonyManager.getDeviceId call. myrth also wants to know if the Nokia X platform offers a way to retrieve both device IMEIs.

Symbianyucca confirms that Nokia X is like two separate ‘phones’, and thus there are indeed two IMEI numbers, one for each ‘phone’.  He adds that Nokia X does not offer any specific APIs for retrieving both the IMEIs. Myrth, after some tests, concludes that Nokia X indeed has two different IMEI numbers which can be accessed through TelephonyManager::getDeviceId. He finds that this call is available via reflection, and that the result does change depending on which SIM slot is currently active.

Keep those interesting questions coming!
