tnx for the link)
I was reading that api for several days)
I know about items() method.
But it's not that quick.
The problem in details is the following:
I have a Vector of several numbers/emails which are not pinned to any contact information (like UID or smth else).
And for every element from Vector (e.g.: "email@example.com", "456123789",..) I should find corresponding name (and show it often further).
I work with a huge (2000) Address book.

for a quick check by number you can do this:
create a http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/5.0.0api
to retrieve the full contact you still have to use the contactlist, but it should be more performant.

nope, no such luck.
if you work with the addressbook extensively you have no other option but to copy it into a performant structure.
internally the addressbook uses a patricia tree which is quite fast - i have absolutely no clue why the API is so slow.
there have been posts about people doing exactly that, but it's been some time.
when working on os5+ it would be easier to save with sqllite, but still a lot of work to overcome a stupid API.
