Change BBM status in without users permission Webworks

Hi, I need to change the BBM status without the permission of the end user(through the application unknowingly to the user).
Is it possible???
If possible how to bypass the oncomplete method from the api

blackberry.bbm.platform.self.setStatus(blackberry.bbm.platform.self.status,"status string", function (accepted){
    // User accepted the change
    // User canceled the change

Re: Change BBM status in without users permission Webworks

Changing the users BBM status without their permission would not be very ethical... and I suspect that users would uninstall your app upon discovering the change... followed by writing a bad review of your app in BlackBerry World.

If you think that the user would accept the new status message you are proposing then request permission!... They'll accept it ;-)

If you are trying to "advertize" your app don't be surprised if the user doesn't want to update their status.
