The Contact API allows MIDlets to discover and receive changes to the device’s contacts in the phonebook. You can also use the Contact API to access social contacts.
MIDlets can use the Contact API to discover when:
Contacts and social contacts are added to the phonebook
Contacts and social contacts are deleted from the phonebook
Contacts and social contacts are modified, i.e. the fields of the contacts are changed, in the phonebook
Use the Contact API, if you want to discover changes to the contacts in the phonebook, but do not want to implement the contact change management functionality by yourself.
The Contact API currently supports contact changes only when the requesting MIDlet is active.
The Contact API is compatible with devices running on Nokia Asha software platform or newer.
To find out which device models support the Contact API, see Nokia Developer device specifications.
