    quickly I would want to say that No there are not. Anyway, what is the use case here, and what kind of data you have which could be used for determining the address details ?

    The HERE places REST service API does indeed have Search suggestions, which you could query, but for cities I have not seen it having anyting, nor have I seen such functionality with the Maps API for Windows phones. Thus would assume that the APIs are not supporting this kind of use case.

    The nearest thing I could find with Nokia/HERE services was the Nokia Places API...

    http://developer.here.com/apiexplore...uggestion.html

    You can pass a) the users current geo-position and b) a string, and it'll pass back suggested places.

    Google have an address autocomplete as part of it's Location/Place APIs...

    https://developers.google.com/places...n/autocomplete

    Obviously, you'll have to wire up either of these yourself using something like HttpClient Portable and JSON.Net- but it should be straight forward enough.

    nokia/here services still need to location data (long,lat) and it will not usefull for me since what i want to do with my autocomplete is helping people to figure out the right string for location.

    i think i will try google autocomplete since that is the best solution , just hoping nokia/here can have such feature too

    Surely there are internal APIs which HERE branded application can use, so what they use in that application could be something that they are just using internally, or it could be something that they are still developing, anyway, developer.here.com, should be listing any public offerings they may have.

    Not sure how many countries you need to cover? But all city info is mostly available through this site: http://www.freesearching.com/zip_codes_intl.htm ( right top it's grouped per starting letter )
    So you could add that to your app if you only need to cover a few countries?
