How can we improve the Windows platform?

API to Retrieve IMEI , IMSI , MCC , MNC and MSISDN

Give Some API to find out these thing.Android and IPhone provide API's to find out these thing.And don't give accuses because of security reasons.Android and IPhone is also secure.So work on it and Provide Some API because in Mobile technology it is very difficult to create application without this.

        Even if we don't need user's personal information, MCC and MNC is also a must for our network speed and connexion performance application (www.nperf.com / app.nperf.com). We won't be able to develop a Windows Phone / Window version (WinRT 8.1) without having at least the MCC and MNC for the SIM (and for the network for roaming). This information in available on all other main platform like Android, and even on iOS !! Ideally, we will also need a db signal strength (RSSI/RSRP/RSRQ), the CellID and the LAC/TAC.

        We're looking to build an app where the user chooses what type of service centre to call, but the app chooses which is the most suitable number to dial. For legal reasons the app must rely on the MCC to choose which number is most suitable. Reverse geocoding is the other option, but we must consider the network on which the call was made, and not which side of a national boarder a person may have been standing on. Having the MCC mapped to an ISO country codes would also be appreciated.

        For this we very much need access to the network MCC.

        We also would like a way to get the IMEI through the next API. We get it in BBOS, iOS and Android, and we're still puzzled as to why we can't get it in WP.

        Thanks!

        Yes I second the idea. In fact if we want to have any serious LOB apps with ultimate security for WP phone quickly then this is very much required. Also do not gives us the excuse that the same is accessible via DM client. It is really a painful process to get that working and with very short trun around time this is really not possible. If you really want some real adoption and compete with iOS and Android please go for such features, less WP 8 only will be a toy.
