Can you clarify what you mean by "the details of bbm contact"?

 

Note: BBM connected applications can only "see" those contacts that also have the same BBM connected application.

 

So its not an open door to browser your end-users contact lists (which would be a privacy concern).

Thank you very much for your concern. I have been able to resolve the issue. At first I thought I could access all my bbm contacts incuding those who do not have the bbm connected app installed. I had to implement an invite for those who do not have the app installed using blackberry.bbm.platform.users.inviteToDownload so I was able to access user profiles through the pickUser() function.
