Try to use Integer.toHexString(DeviceInfo.getDeviceId()) for retrieves a device's PIN.

Thanks Maz,
But I have one more question, " using of BBM pin is legit to identify the users by the application ?" as Iphone does not allow apple ids or use of emails to be retrieved in concern of privacy breach.

Not sure about your question, Sorry. Maybe you should wating for an expert. Smiley Happy

As I know, BB App World has an Blackberry ID to identify user, not PIN.
