Directly in J2ME, you can only look up names from the phone's directory. The access to the phone's information is blocked by the sandbox, this way no hacker can ruin a person's phone with J2ME.

Now, the device manufacturer might have a lower level api that you can use for that device only and you could then use that to get to it. If they provide that access.

Sorry Mark ...

I think that I don't explain very well what I need... I'm from Argetina and my english is very poor

My app have an RMS with 1000 products, and I wish to add some of the products names to the dictionary used by T9...
This is to make more friendly the text input to the user.

I'm not searching how to do that with J2ME ... I want to know If exists any way to do it...

I hope that now you understand what I need

Thanks

Does J2ME Polish have the ability to have drop downs or lookups like that.

I know I am still talking about J2ME here, but that is the only way to get access to the RecordStore is through J2ME. The only way I see for getting words into your phone dictionary is manually.
