    Copy Contacts from Phone to Sim Card?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, just wondering if there was a way to copy all the contacts from my phone onto the simcard without having to it one by one. I know theres a way to copy all my contacts from my sim onto my phone, but there should be a faster way to copy to your sim. I know i can save my contacts onto my computer via DM but i'd like to have it on my sim in case i switch back to my other phone when i go out (dont take bb to clubs :P)

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not aware of one. you have to do them one by one.... One number per contact name and when you copy it over the contact name cannot be listed as a company name and there can't be pictures attached to contact.

    Sorry you can only do it one at a time. Reason being on your SIM you can only store NAME and NUMBER. Aslo it is limited to only 250 contacts.

    I think the main reason is that the SIM card is really limited.

    And to add to Red's explanation, only one phone number per name.

    Yes that is true. But I like to have all my numbers on my sim card so if something were to go wrong with the phone, or something were to happen to it, I wouldnt lose all my numbers because I would have them backed up on my sim.

    Do you sync with anything? It far better to have it snyced or backed up by your desktop manager. Then all your info will be kept and if you do get a new device then all you have to do is sync it. Far easier than the SIM card. Just my 2 cents.

    There is a way to add nunbers to your sim via t-mobile.com... 11 at a time... Easier to type em out with a keyboard and you don't have to tether up. Its all ota I can't think of the procedure step by step but its there under edit contacts or something.
