    Question How to save a telephone number on to a sim card memory on BB 8700

    Advertisement



    BB 8700

    Hi,

    I am new to BB and am trying to find out how to save a new telephone number on my SIM card memory rather than on BB Address book.

    Secondly, how to copy Address Book contacts onto the SIM card.

    I would be very grateful if anyone knows how to do so.

    Many thanks

    kbutt

    Welcome to pinstack.

    While in the address book scroll to a contact and click the wheel to bring up the menu. You should see an option for add to sim phonebook, or something similar. That is how you add contacts to your sim card, and you must do this one at a time.

    kbutt, Welcome to PinStack.

    And do remember that saving to the SIM does not save everyting in the Contact entry for the Address Book.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Question How to save a telephone number on to a sim card memory on BB 8700

    Thanks a lot for your reply guys.

    I have tried what you have mentioned in your msg, I dont seem to get any option to copy the contact to the sim card. I have only following options:

    Help
    Filter
    New Address
    New Group
    View
    Edit
    Delete
    Call 'the contact'
    SMS 'the conact'
    SIM Phone Book
    Options
    Close

    The SIM book options opens the SIM book where I want to save.

    Options, dont give you any option to save the contact number on the sim card.

    Thanks a lot for your help and assistance in this problem.

    Regards
    Kbutt

    Welcome to the Stacks Kbutt. I believe you have to have the name and number stored in your address book first. Then, you go to the contact you want to move, open it, scroll over the phone number, press the trackwheel and you'll see an option to "Copy to SIM Phone Book". Let us know if you are still having trouble.

    The reason that you must scroll to the phone number for the contact is that each Sim Contact entry can only have one Phone Number per entry. This way the App knows which number to add to the Sim card.
