Contact details

Hi,

 

I have been working on getting contact information form the phone but found that I only have limited access to fields in the SDK

 

My contact list contains contacts entered on phone and some twitter contacts.  When using the Contacts API I find that only the phone enetered contacts are returned and teh twitter ones are ignored.

 

Also I am unable to retrive fields form teh contacts such as IMS, Birthdays, websites etc.

 

Looking at the SDK here http://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/reference/bb__pim__contacts__contact.html

You can see the only real accessable options are...

 

Name,

Phone Numbers,

Email addresses,

Address,

Photos.

 

How can I get the additional information that you can enter into contacts.

 

Thanks

Re: Contact details

The social information (Twitter, Facebook, etc) is exlucded from the PIM API, by design.

Re: Contact details

So, there is no API to get information from connected social accounts?
