    Hi All,

    I have a website and want to be abe to allow access to mobile phones.

    Can a web site detect a mobile phone number to use as single sign on ?

    Like a website can detect your ip address and validate it against a database ......can it be done with a mobile phone number.....or do mobile phones have another such unique identifier

    When a mobile phone browses an ASP.NET site, the server receives a HTTP request.  There is no standard on HTTP itself to force the specification of a user phone number.  My understanding is that it is up to the wireless carrier to include phone# as part of the HTTP header when the request is going through its gateway.  So there is no guaranteed way if a mobile phone number is included.

    For a typical login scenario, a site should create a mobile page to allow a user to sign in.  That can be an alternative as identifying a phone number.
