// Import Platform Service Interface
import com.nokia.lib.Service;
// 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 = outList.next();
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.
