Exception or error:

I want to get contacts saved in phone only not sim contacts using new api contactContracts

i am doing this by filtering Account type (not com.anddroid.contacts.sim),this work for one handset(HTC Desire) but there is no common account type found which can work for all handsets
can anybody tell me how to do that

How to solve:

Give the permission in the manifest file
“android.permission.READ_CONTACTS”

just copy the code and contacts will be shown in Logcat

public class GetContactsDemo extends Activity {
    /** Called when the activity is first created. */
    @Override
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_getcontactsdemo);
        readContacts();
    }

    public void readContacts(){
         ContentResolver cr = getContentResolver();
         Cursor cur = cr.query(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI,
                null, null, null, null);

         if (cur.getCount() > 0) {
            while (cur.moveToNext()) {
                String id = cur.getString(cur.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts._ID));
                String name = cur.getString(cur.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME));
                if (Integer.parseInt(cur.getString(cur.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts.HAS_PHONE_NUMBER))) > 0) {
                    System.out.println("name : " + name + ", ID : " + id);

                    // get the phone number
                    Cursor pCur = cr.query(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI,null,
                                           ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTACT_ID +" = ?",
                                           new String[]{id}, null);
                    while (pCur.moveToNext()) {
                          String phone = pCur.getString(
                                 pCur.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.NUMBER));
                          System.out.println("phone" + phone);
                    }
                    pCur.close();


                    // get email and type

                   Cursor emailCur = cr.query(
                            ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Email.CONTENT_URI,
                            null,
                            ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Email.CONTACT_ID + " = ?",
                            new String[]{id}, null);
                    while (emailCur.moveToNext()) {
                        // This would allow you get several email addresses
                            // if the email addresses were stored in an array
                        String email = emailCur.getString(
                                      emailCur.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Email.DATA));
                        String emailType = emailCur.getString(
                                      emailCur.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Email.TYPE));

                      System.out.println("Email " + email + " Email Type : " + emailType);
                    }
                    emailCur.close();

                    if (noteCur.moveToFirst()) {

                      System.out.println("Note " + note);
                    }
                    noteCur.close();

                    //Get Postal Address....

                    String addrWhere = ContactsContract.Data.CONTACT_ID + " = ? AND " + ContactsContract.Data.MIMETYPE + " = ?";

                    Cursor addrCur = cr.query(ContactsContract.Data.CONTENT_URI,

                        // Do something with these....

                    }
                    addrCur.close();

                    // Get Instant Messenger.........
                    String imWhere = ContactsContract.Data.CONTACT_ID + " = ? AND " + ContactsContract.Data.MIMETYPE + " = ?";
                    String[] imWhereParams = new String[]{id,

                }
            }
       }
    }

}

You may want to look at ContentProviders for the ContactsProvider.

The ContentProvider tutorial even uses Contacts as an example:

the URI for the table that matches phone numbers to people and the URI for the table that holds pictures of people (both controlled by the Contacts content provider) are:

android.provider.Contacts.Phones.CONTENT_URI
android.provider.Contacts.Photos.CONTENT_URI

Dmitri Plotnikov has some very useful things to say in this Google Group thread.

###

You must add uses_permission android:name=”android.permission.READ_CONTACTS then read the contacts as below:

 Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI, null, null, null, null);
    while (cursor.moveToNext()) {
        String name = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME));

    }

###

You can try the following code, I got the the required details:

Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI,null,null, null,null);
while (cursor.moveToNext()) {
    listName.add(cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME)));
    listContactId.add(cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts._ID)));
    if (Integer.parseInt(cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts.HAS_PHONE_NUMBER))) > 0) {                
        Cursor pCur = getContentResolver().query(
        ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTENT_URI, null,ContactsContract.CommonDataKinds.Phone.CONTACT_ID +" = "+cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex(ContactsContract.Contacts._ID)),null, null);
        while (pCur.moveToNext()) {
            listMobileNo.add(pCur.getString(pCur.getColumnIndex("DATA1")));
        } 
        pCur.close();
    } else
        listMobileNo.add("");
}
