Re: NullPointerException when blackberrycontactlist.lookup

According to this article: http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB04469

 

there is a broken piece of data in device memory/contacts.

 

Make full backup via BB Desktop Manager.

 

After that wipe the device memory via

 

Options - Security Options - General Settings

 

open menu and hit "Wipe handheld"

 

Add new contacts manually and try to invoke your code again.

 

Later - restore backed up information to the device.

Hi,tbilisoft,

lookup method will lookup the contacts from remote BES , not local address book. the article can't explain it?

Re: NullPointerException when blackberrycontactlist.lookup

Your original post did not mention that.

 

For now I have no idea why it throws an exception when it is querying BES server.

Re: NullPointerException when blackberrycontactlist.lookup

Hi, I found the possible reason:

Because it will look up from bes, the related service book item should be pushed to devices. or the bes server should be configured for the GAL lookup
