Hi All,

I am looking for the solution to get contact details (Phone, Email, Zip) from the device. I have implemented code for OS 1.6 as well as for 2.2. I am building an application with API level 4 (1.6), but when I run the build in 2.2 device I am getting email and phone string null.

CODE - for OS 1.6

CODE - for OS 2.2

Here is the code snippet I have found

Do anyone have suggestion how can I get contacts' information with help of this code snippet?

IIRC the "People" API is deprecated in 2.2 so you will need to use the ContactsContract provider

I did start to write up my findings on this but I need to review it/complete it, but my post might help you
