[edit] Searching for contacts by phone number

Searching for contacts by phone number can be done using the osso_abook_aggregator_find_contacts_for_phone_number() function:

def aggregator_ready_cb(aggregator, error, user_data):
    contacts = osso_abook.osso_abook_aggregator_find_contacts_for_phone_number(aggregator, phone_number, 1)
    if contacts:
        print "Contacts with phone number %s:" % phone_number
        for i in glist(contacts):
            contact_get_display_name = osso_abook.osso_abook_contact_get_display_name
            contact_get_display_name.restype = ctypes.c_char_p
            print contact_get_display_name(i)
        print "No contacts found with phone number %s." % phone_number
aggregator = osso_abook.osso_abook_aggregator_get_default(0)
wait_cb_type = ctypes.CFUNCTYPE(None, ctypes.c_void_p, ctypes.c_void_p, ctypes.c_void_p)
# Keep prototype object reference so it is not destroyed
cb_proto = wait_cb_type(aggregator_ready_cb)
osso_abook.osso_abook_waitable_call_when_ready(aggregator, cb_proto, 0, 0)
