Archived.pngArchived: This article is archived because it is not considered relevant for third-party developers creating commercial solutions today. If you think this article is still relevant, let us know by adding the template {{ReviewForRemovalFromArchive|user=~~~~|write your reason here}}.

We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived. Flash Lite has been removed from all Nokia Asha and recent Series 40 devices and has limited support on Symbian. Specific information for Nokia Belle is available in Flash Lite on Nokia Browser for Symbian. Specific information for OLD Series 40 and Symbian devices is available in the Flash Lite Developers Library.

The following code snippet demonstrates how to list contacts in the default phonebook useing the Contact Service API in a Flash Lite 3.0 (supported from S60 5th Edition onwards).

// Import Platform Service Interface
// Heading of the application
heading_txt.text = "List Contacts (firstname)";
// Create a new Service object which has Contact data
var contact = new Service("Service.Contact", "IDataSource");
// Define input parameters
var inParams = {Type:"Contact"};
// Define the result value
var outParams = contact.GetList(inParams);
if (outParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
var outList = outParams.ReturnValue;
var outputEntry = null;
do {
outputEntry =;
if (null != outputEntry) {
// Get firstname of the contact and trace it to the textfield
var firstname = outputEntry.FirstName["Value"];
text_txt.text += "-"+firstname+"\r";
} else {
} while (true);
} else {
// if errors, copy them to the textfield
var errorId = outParams.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text += "Error: "+errorId;


All contacts of the default phonebook are displayed.
