    How to get list of contacts programmatically

    Hi!

    I have technical question to you.

    I want to write a tool to get the list of contacts (by OBEX protocol and with using vCard format) from my phone (Nokia E60).
    How I can get these data from my phone?

    I see that the "Wireless Communication Devices" is created in the system when phone is connected with PC.
    Can I use these "devices" to get the list of contacts?
    Can I use the WinAPI function "DeviceIoControl" for this?

    I use PC with Windows XP.

    Thanks,
    Vladimir

    You cannot initiate OBEX sending of contacts from the PC, unless you also write and install an app that sits on the phone, which your PC app can command to start sending vCards.

    However, if you have Nokia PC Suite installed, take a look at the PC Suite APIs (download the Nokia PC Suite Connectivity API v3.2 package from this Tools and SDKs area on the Forum Nokia homepage).

    Thank you for answer!

    So, I can not connect with phone without Nokia SDK?

    The "Wireless Communication Devices", modem port (for Nokia phones) are created in the system when phone is connected with PC.
    I suppose that I can use these devices ("pots") to send or to receive the data from connected devices directly (without Nokia SDK).
    I suppose that a "Nokia SDK" use these "ports" to send or to receive the data also.

    Thanks,
    Vladimir
