ContactsPicker crashes on email address with exchange contacts

This is a bug report. I'm not quite sure if im in the right place for this.

The ContactPicker crashes the app on the email field if you select a contact that was synced via Microsoft Exchange.

Exchange contacts on the iPhone do not have a label associated with email addresses.

    I was able to modify the source code to prevent the crash from happeing. I've updated the lighthouse ticket with my findings.

    ContactsModule.m line 378

          if (CFlabel) {
            label = [NSString stringWithString:[[[TiContactsPerson multiValueLabels] allKeysForObject:(NSString*)CFlabel] objectAtIndex:0]];
          else {
            label = @"none";

  • I am experiencing the same issue, as well as some others.

    The appropriate thing to do, now that you have confirmed more of us are having the issue is to see if there are any existing lighthouse tickets…..and if not create a new one.
