get BlackBerry ID email

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone,

 what is the easiest way to get user's blackberry id email?

 Is it possible to get this email without requiring user to login into blackberry id system?

Re: get BlackBerry ID email

Currently, there are no third party APIs that allow an application to retrieve a user's BlackBerry ID email address.

 

What is the use case for requesting this?

Re: get BlackBerry ID email

thanks for response,

 actually I want to make something like unified account for users for all my applications, if user plays 2 or more of my games, for example. 

 So I'm looking for a way to simplify login/registering process. By the way, I haven't seen, but are there any open ID or facebook user authorization for BB OS? You know, on the web when user has a choice to create new account or login with his facebook or twitter account.

Understood.  There isn't anything in the core BlackBerry API set for this, but there is a third party Facebook BlackBerry SDK that may help you out.  It can be found here:  http://sourceforge.net/projects/facebook-bb-sdk/

Re: get BlackBerry ID email

I'm aware of Facebook SDK, but it lacks essential documentation. I managed to post messages on the wall just by occasion. 

 Ok - I know that it is possible to retrieve some PPID from user's profile from BBM SDK. I successfully got it, but the fact that bbm is required makes things bad, many of our users ask us to remove bbm support because they face problems. For example, using proxy method, users upgrade to latest bbm version, but still are not able to run the app.
