Re: update bb Contact

String[] names = new String[5];
names[BlackBerryContact.NAME_PREFIX] = "whatever";
names[BlackBerryContact.NAME_GIVEN] = "whatever";
names[BlackBerryContact.NAME_FAMILY] = "whatever";
blackBerryContact.addStringArray(BlackBerryContact.NAME, BlackBerryContact.ATTR_NONE, names); 

 just as an example. addresses are stored in a String[7]

Re: update bb Contact

Is there any problem using:


String addr[] = new String [5];

addr [ BlackBerryContact.ADDR_COUNTRY ] = "YourCountry";

addr [ BlackBerryContact.ADDR_POSTALCODE ] = "YourPostalCode";

addr [ BlackBerryContact.ADDR_REGION ] = "YourRegion";


addr [ BlackBerryContact.ADDR_STREET ] = "YourStreet";

blackBerryContact.addStringArray(BlackBerryContact.ADDR, BlackBerryContact.ATTR_NONE, addr);
