Detect name of caller


I found the getDisplayPhoneNumber() API to get the number of the caller: 




Now my question: is there a way to detect if the caller is in the addressbook (if the caller has a name) or if the number is unknown?


Thank you! 

If your question was answered, please accept it as a sollution and / or give Kudos ;-)

Re: Detect name of caller

It was recommended in an earlier post that the fastest way was to lookup the contact by the last 4 digits and then programatically look through the results.
