Re: how to generate GUID?

Use the combination of device pin (can be obtained via DeviceInfo class) and


net.rim.device.api.synchronization.UIDGenerator class.

      // To get the UUID of Device.
        public static String getUUID()
                int deviceID = DeviceInfo.getDeviceId();
                UUID u = new UUID(deviceID);
                String uuid= u.toString();

                return uuid

You can use Guid Generator for generate GUIDs.
