Device PIN for Push

It seems like this should be easy but I can't find any info, how do we get the BlackBerry PIN from a device?  I've tried Build.* and none of them seem to hold it.  It must be available somehow because we need to pass the PIN to our application server so that we can send push messages to the correct device.  Any ideas?

I'm having a similar problem with the Push Service, and my server also needs the Device PIN to identify to wich user it shall send the Push Message. Did you find any solution to this problem?

Re: Device PIN for Push

Hi everyone,


Considering Device PIN is a BlackBerry specific concept, you won't be able to retrieve it from Android.


You can in Cascades though: https://developer.blackberry.com/native/reference/cascades/bb__device__hardwareinfo.html#property-pi...
