    Can't find SIM numbers

    Advertisement



    Hi

    I am a new user of an 8707g and I have what is probably a silly question

    I get emails and I can access my contacts from Outlook, but I can't find the SIM card numbers. I assume that I should be able to see them??

    The SIM card works fine in an ordinary mobile and I transferred all the numbers from that phone onto the SIM card. I then put the SIM card into my BB and I can make and receive calls but any incoming calls are not recognised by name.

    Any thoughts?

    You will have to have to copy your sim contacts to your BB. Go to addressbook. Click trackwheel and select sim phone book. Sim phonebook will load. Click trackwheel and click copy all to addressbook.

    If you use Microsoft Outlook, you can sync the addressbook, calendar, memo pad, and/or tasks with your BB.

    Hope this helps you.

    This looks like it might work but I was sort of hoping that I could keep the two phone books seperate

    I will be out of town at a conference for a few days and I know some of the other participants have the same BB, so I will check with them and report back

    If you want the contacts separate, leave them on the sim. You could further complicate things by copying the contacts to the BB and then creating a group for them and assign those selected contacts to that group. Then in your address book select a filter and choose the newly created group. That will show only those contacts. But, all contacts will show in an unfiltered view.

    The only way to keep the two separate is do like you were doing before.

    I copied them to my Address Book on my BB but when I got back to work I found that they had also been copied to my Outlook contacts

    DCookSta said "If you want the contacts separate, leave them on the sim."

    If I leave them on the Sim, how do I then find them to call them?

    Go to address book. Click trackwheel, select SIM phone book. Click track wheel. SIM phone book loads. Find the person you want to call and click send.
