Accessing contacts ?

My sample application wants to display the contacts (that were
previously added) in the phone and let user pick some of them. Are
there any APIs we can use to access the contents of the contacts ? If
contacts are stored in some database, do I need to know the underlying
schema of contacts ?

 You can start an intent with actionpick and set the type as People.content
type..and on the activityresultset u will get the uri with
intens.getData.From that in ur activity u have the uri frm whch u can get
the info about the contact selected.

1. Question about LBS

Hi All,

Quick question about LBS functionality. I recall a thread previously about
end users having an application with mutual discovery for location based
services (people in the same area sharing play lists as an example) that was
a violation of some sort within the licensing.

Anyhow part of my application functionality relies on mutual discovery of
another user nearby however the end user has to "opt in" for this
functionality to work, rather than opt out or having it automatically
enabled. Anyhow I was wondering if designing this functionality into the app
would be within the parameters of the license?

Any input is appriciated
