    Android - Filter search: Contacts with informed phone number only

    When searching for all the contacts in Android, by default all the google contacts(Gmail
history, etc...) are returned. This causes performance problems when the number of contacts
is big.
    Usually, we only want contacts that have a phone number informed. I have addes a new optional
boolean parameter to the options object of the "find" method: "phoneNumberInformedOnly"
    If we send true in this parameter, the where clause of the select to the contacts database
will include:
          "AND (" + ContactsContract.Contacts.HAS_PHONE_NUMBER + " = 1)"
    This filter is also added if a filter string is sent to the search method.
    Use case:
        // find all contacts with 'Bob' in any name field
        var options      = new ContactFindOptions();
        options.multiple = true;
        options.phoneNumberInformedOnly = true;
        options.desiredFields = [];
        var fields       = [navigator.contacts.fieldType.displayName,];
        navigator.contacts.find(fields, onSuccess, onError, options);
