    Was anyone able to figure this out?  I'm trying to do the same thing.

    Were you looking for the property Page.Browser.Id?

    I need to be able to identify a specific Mobile Device, by some sort of ID or a phone number, for example:

    If someone connects to the web application and there phone number is (123)123-4567 or there phone ID is 1234 then it authenticates them to use the application.  Otherwise it will give them an access denied error.  Is there anyway to do this?

    It would depends on whether the id of the device is sent from the device or the carrier in the http request.  I remember that some Carriers do include an id in a HttpHeader which you can retrieve in your server code.  But I would doubt that it is common.

    You may need to add authentication to your web app and prompt user to enter userid and password to log in to control who can access your site or not.

    I do this with a Blackberry, but it is specific to the Blackberry and only when running through a Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES).

    I can do a Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_RIM_DEVICE_ID"] and it gives me the PIN of the device.

    I'd also be interested if any other devices do anything similar.
