 Uri uri = Contacts.CONTENT_URI.buildUpon()
          .appendQueryParameter(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX, "true")
          .build();
 Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(uri,
          new String[] {Contacts.DISPLAY_NAME},
          null, null, null);
 Bundle bundle = cursor.getExtras();
 if (bundle.containsKey(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX_TITLES) &&
         bundle.containsKey(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX_COUNTS)) {
     String sections[] =
             bundle.getStringArray(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX_TITLES);
     int counts[] = bundle.getIntArray(Contacts.EXTRA_ADDRESS_BOOK_INDEX_COUNTS);
 }
