    I am upgrading my contactbook application from 1.6 to 2.0. To retrive the contacts i am using followin code :

    Cursor mCursor = getContentResolver().query(ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI ,null,null,null,null);
    int nameFieldColumnIndex = mCursor.getColumnIndex(PhoneLookup.DISPLAY_NAME);

    String contact = mCursor.getString(nameFieldColumnIndex);

    But it is giving me this exception
    12-04 10:50:05.811: ERROR/AndroidRuntime(582): java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to start activity ComponentInfo{lgsi.app.pkg/lgsi.app.pkg.ContactActivity}: android.database.CursorIndexOutOfBoundsException: Index -1 requested, with a size of 3

    Plz provide some guidelines..

    Are you sure this is the exact code you were running? Because the error message indicates that there are only 3 columns in the returned cursor, which would not be the case for ContactsContract.Contacts.CONTENT_URI.
