    Talking need help basics

    Hi,
    Iam new to symbian cpp and have one doubt
    i am writing an application that fetch contact from the phone and send it a server via gprs
    so i have heard of s60, series 60 fp2, fp3 etc. i guess these are various versions of symbian os in the phone.
    so if i want to write an app which will be supported by maximum number of phones which one should I choose
    s60 fp2,fp3, s40 etc..
    Thanks in advance

    S40 does not have symbian OS. So u have only option of S60 2nd and 3rd edition.

    Goto wiki and search word "contact". you will get lots of example from there to get contact from contact book.

    Choosing a target device might be a good idea. Then you can check which platform it uses on http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices

    A useful suggestion regarding how to learn SYmbian, but the actual question was which SDK platform to choose to target the maximum number of phones.
