    Question adding a new contact in S40 using java

    i´m developping an application in java for the nokia s40's phones, and i working with the jsr-75 PIM. I got an option in my applications, and this is to add new contacts in the list of the phone, addinig the name, the phone and the email. The problem is that when i add a new contact, and i search for it in the contact list of the phone, it doesn't have the name, it says that the contact is unnamed.
    i use the following code:

    PIM pim = PIM.getInstance();
    		PIMList lista = null;
    		String[] listas = pim.listPIMLists(PIM.CONTACT_LIST);
    		ContactList listaContactos = null;
    		try {
    		   lista = PIM.getInstance().openPIMList(PIM.CONTACT_LIST, PIM.READ_WRITE, listas[0]);
    		   listaContactos = (ContactList) PIM.getInstance().openPIMList(PIM.CONTACT_LIST, PIM.READ_WRITE, listas[0]);
    		} catch(Exception e) {
    		   // security or other exception
    //		Add contact values
    		Contact nuevoContacto = listaContactos.createContact();
    			nuevoContacto.addString(Contact.FORMATTED_NAME, Contact.ATTR_PREFERRED, newNombre);
    and tried using the next instructions, but it says that those are invalid fields.

    nuevoContacto.addString(Contact.NAME, Contact.ATTR_PREFERRED, newNombre);
    nuevoContacto.addString(Contact.NAME_FAMILY, Contact.ATTR_PREFERRED, newNombre);
    nuevoContacto.addString(Contact.NAME_GIVEN, Contact.ATTR_PREFERRED, newNombre);
    nuevoContacto.addString(Contact.NAME_OTHER, Contact.ATTR_PREFERRED, newNombre);
    nuevoContacto.addString(Contact.NAME_PREFIX, Contact.ATTR_PREFERRED, newNombre);
    nuevoContacto.addString(Contact.NAME_SUFFIX, Contact.ATTR_PREFERRED, newNombre);
    Can anyone help me?

    Re: adding a new contact in S40 using java

    Try using the PIMList getSupportedFields() method to get the supported field list (getFieldLabel() could be useful to identify the one you're searching).

    Hope it helps
