// Import Platform Service Interface
import com.nokia.lib.Service;
// Heading of the application
heading_txt.text = "Add Contact";
// Create a new Service object which has Calendar data
var contact = new Service("Service.Contact", "IDataSource");
// Define the Contact Entry (First name and Mobile number)
var Name = {Label:"First Name", Value:"Example"};
var mobile = {Label:"HomeMobile Phone", Value:"9999999999"};
var contactEntry = {FirstName:Name, MobilePhoneHome:mobile};
// Define the input parameters
var inParams = {Type:"Contact", Data:contactEntry};
// Define the result data
var outParams = contact.Add(inParams);
// Check if the add was a success
if (outParams.ErrorCode == 0) {
text_txt.text = "Contact entry added!";
} else {
var errorId = outParams.ErrorCode;
text_txt.text += "\rError: "+errorId;


The added contact information can be found from the default phonebook of the device.
