is it possible for a j2me app to access the nokia phone's phonebook entries? particularly 3530,3650, 6600, 6210...

According to the MIDP specification, there is no direct way to access the phone book of the device. However, there are two exceptions. 1. If a TextField's type is PHONENUMBER, then the device implementation MAY give the user an option to select the phone from the address book (only selection) 2. There is a MIDlet.platformRequest(String url) method that can be used to initiate phone calls. The url should be of the form "tel://<msisdn-number>". This is the full form of the number, like +1234567890. This is available only in MIDP 2.0 and your phone should support it. Hope this helps.
