Hi all, I've looked through a plethora of MIDP textbooks and none of them
seem to mention anything about how I can access the user mobile device info such as the clients/users telephone number, or their telephone book entries. I assume like with applets, that J2ME MIdlets are sandboxed and are restricted from accessing specific things. Thanks for your time.

As far as I know, information such as cellphone number, address book, calendar, etc, are not part of the MIDP specification. You may access such information by using APIs from the cellphone providers (I believe Nokia has an SDK that gives you access to some of that information, but only on certain phone models).
