Question Ponerse en contacto

I ran across this phrase today a couple of times, and am not quite sure how it fits into a sentence structure....

Is the "ponerse" reflexive or just pronomial? So should the pronoun correspond to the subject?

I wanted to say "Luis already contacted me..." to a Spanish-speaking friend. I said "Luis ya se puso en contacto conmigo..." Is that correct?

So are the following ideas correct?
- Te pones en countacto con Silvia. (You contact Silvia.)
- Se pone en contacto con el grupo. (He contacted the group.)


Thank you!
