It is not the intention to deal in any other way with the SIM’s address book (AND and FDN) apart from this retrieve operation, so neither the rest of the methods (find, remove, etc) nor the ContactChangeEvent apply in principle to SIM contacts.

Yes, it should read Contact objects

It should be fired whenever a contact is added, deleted or modified

It may be a good idea to add another event whenever a new SIM is inserted.
