Thanks for this, BTW during the past night I looked to the Zhone code 
and I got that it was using only the sim, so I've "forced" it to use 
only my phonebook hardcoding there my phonebook as shown in the "Fake 
phonebook" code. What I'd like to do is merging these contacts with the 
one saved on the SIM, so I'll be able to save new contacts (and view 
them) too...
