Subject Re: Apple rejecting apps that access the device's UUID
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2012 20:35:26 GMT
iPads and iPods don't have phone numbers and there is no API to get it
on iPhone.

Same for nic and any other device specific value.

Re: file path, is the guid per install, or is it really just a hash of
deviceId and appId? Does it survive app updates? resync's?

File path is not a guid on WP7, in fact it is unknown. Sandboxed wpapp://



Cheers,
