  • You may not need to talk to the services directly. Depending on what your actual needs are you may be able to use the ContactPicker. This will allow your users to pick contacts from any app which exports contacts with the Contact contract. The People app supports Live, Exchange, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google, and other apps could be written for other contact sources.

    Take a look at How to select multiple contacts  and the Contact Picker apps sample for more detail.

  • Hi Srinivas,

    You need to research each of those products and see what is required to access these APIs.
