This code sample is named PocketOutlookSample. It demonstrates how to write a Personal Information Manager (PIM)/Messaging application that uses API members from the Microsoft.WindowsMobile.PocketOutlook namespace, along with API members from the Microsoft.WindowsMobile.Telephony namespace. The application binds a ContactCollection to a List Box, binds a Contact property to a Text Box, edits Contact properties, sends a Short Messaging Service (SMS) text message, and calls a Contact's phone number.
