This is not allowed by Apple. You cannot prevent the phone from ringing or vibrating.

Is it possible to make a group of callers and only allow their calls to be ringed or vibrated or noticed what ever ?

I wanted to make an app like this. This is not allowed either. Apples strong stand on no apps running in the background prevents this from happening. You would probably be able to accomplish this on the illegal installer app / cydia.

I got this book.

http://www.amazon.com/iPhone-Open-Application-Development-Applications/dp/0596518552/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243528127&sr=8-11

and its counterpart, by the same author for developing for the illegal installer app.

I dont know what I think about them, Ive been reading the App Store one and it seems some of the examples arent very useful and I havent learned that much. Ive heard this one is good.

There isnt very much useful information on the internet. Apple has its whole developer connection with information, but its not useful at all :)

The book i was reading said you cannot read or write to directories other than your application directory. So I was going to say no you cant create contacts. But I checked out the book because I remember it having a section on Contacts. You can create contacts, But I dont know anything about groups. I dont think contacts have groups.

And why do you want my email? psufan513@aol.com

Hey thanks, if you need anything else just let me know. I dont know very much about programming, frankly I think objective-c sucks but I know a lot of other stuff about the iPhone. Shoot me an email if you have another question here and people arent answering. There arent really any iPhone programmers here, so you will have to figure that out on your own.
