    270- cingular- gprs "asian upgrade"

    As a seasoned user (still have some 1mb upgrage chips), I have used many third party apps, and finally made the move to sync'n with outlook via pocketmirror.
    Went in the natural direction -since there are so many more fields in outlook- to Keycontacts: chapura program- interface "fair" user fields almost unlimited.

    Under this arrangement nothing is sync'd to the addressbook its empty. Great more space!

    Get calls, no caller-id.

    Chapura says you can do it, but your back to 2 sets of the same data, and your addressbook sync'n is one way. So, oops If I update the wrong addressbook (addressbook vs keycontacts) it does not update, because it's overwritten.

    Now I am curious, some apps apparently can look at the keycontacs client list and use this for the contacts and features such as the "/L" feature to add the client to your datebook.
    (btw this works in datebook+ and datebook5)

    When it comes to the standard phonebook app (gprs upgrade) or the new takephone application, they can't find this "list".

    Why is this? Any suggestions?

    - The apps that LOOKUP contacts (like the "/L" options) call into KeyContacts to do the search, so what you see is the KeyContacts screen, and the KeyContacts app searching it's own database.

    - BUT - when an application (like TAKEphONE, caller-id, etc.) wants to perform it's own (improved ?) search on the database - it only knows to search the built-in address-book database, and NOT KeyContact's database, which has different name and format.

    Now - if you could convince KeyContacts to publish the name & format of their database, I'm sure developers like myself (TAKEphONE) and others (FingerDial, etc.) will be happy to implement their search mechanism on KeyContact's database.
