    Need Help with platformRequest()

    I need to dial a contact that is already stored in the phone memor/SIM card. Can I use platformRequest() to do this and if yes what argument needs to be passed. The device is 6230i.

    Thanks in advance

    HQZ,

    Nokia 6230i supports PIM API. You must retrieve the contact information from the contacts database by using the JSR-75 (PIM API) and then pass the phone number to your MIDlet.platformRequest call.

    Check the links below for more information.

    Hope it helps!

    juarezjunior,

    Thanks for the quik reply. Yes I am aware of this option by looking into the phone book and them passing the phone number. But my question was more secifically if you can use the Contact's name or assigned speed dial, or something else and not having to supply the actual phone number to platformRequest.

    Thanks

    The method described by juarezjunior is the only one available. You have to pass a phone number of the form "tel:<number>", as specified in RFC2806 to the platformRequest() call.
