Hide SIM contacts on Windows Mobile 6

I had jsut upgraded my mobile phone from WM5 to Windows Mobile 6 and noticed that be default your SIM contacts display.

Great if you don’t already have contacts, but how do you filter or hide of the viewing of the SIM contacts if you don’t want to see them?

Well, I found a few forum threads that tell you to get into the phone settings and change the appropriate option, but my iMate JASJAM does not have such an option.

Next I found a registry hackto fix it up. But my JASJAM did not have that registry key. Mmm If I add the key will it work? One way to find out 🙂

Well it did, and this is what I did:

Disclaimer: Changing or adding registry keys/values is done at your own risk. I take no responsibility for any loss of data or unexpected results.

* Downloaded CERegEditor from Freeware PPC and installed it on my laptop.

* With the JASJAM connected to my laptop via USB, I ran the utility and added the ShowSIM REG_DWORD key to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Phone with a value of 00000000.

Note: to view the SIM contacts, change the value to 00000001.
