I get

Newtonsoft.Json.JsonSerializationException was unhandled
  Message="Unexpected token when deserializing object: StartObject"

When I try to de serialize , here is a sample code.


class Program


public static void Main(string[] args)




Name name = new Name("The Idiot in Next To Me");



PhoneNumber p1 = new PhoneNumber("555-1212");



PhoneNumber p2 = new PhoneNumber("444-1212");





string json = JavaScriptConvert.SerializeObject(name);






Name newName = JavaScriptConvert.DeserializeObject<Name>(json);











class Name





public string personsName; 


public List<PhoneNumber> pNumbers = new List<PhoneNumber>();



public Name(string personsName)




this.personsName = personsName;






class PhoneNumber






public string phoneNumber;



public PhoneNumber(string phoneNumber)





this.phoneNumber = phoneNumber;

I have fixed this bug and checked the change into CodePlex.

How do you change to solve this problem? I'm using JSON.NET 1.3 and am still facing this problem.

The bug was caused by a recently added feature to support deserializing types without a default constructor. If you're getting this error in 1.3 then it is a separate bug.
