Introduction

Invoking People Hub in Windows Phone 7 Emulator

Many a times, your application would require to access the contacts of the user. Fortunately, the Windows Phone Emulator provides you with a few dummy contact entries which you can access. But these contacts are bare bones and they don't feature data like photo, birthday, anniversary, personal address and so on.

If you are a Windows Phone 7 Developer, you must have used the Emulator some or the other time. If you remember well, you will not have seen these screens before on the emulator. The only icon which shows up when you fire up the Emulator is of Internet Explorer. On clicking the right arrow, you get a list of Your application (if deployed), Internet Explorer, Settings.

I am not sure why Microsoft did not put up the People Hub Tile on Windows Phone Emulator but there is a workaround of invoking it and do whatever changes you need. You can even add contacts, link with accounts for Windows Live, Gmail, Outlook, Facebook and others.
