    Question How Do I Copy Contacts From Internal Memory to My SIM Card All At Once

    Advertisement



    I know this has been asked in other forums about other models, but I can't give up hope yet. I mean, THIS IS THE CURVE we're talking about here.

    But SERIOUSLY?!?! Is There absolutely ANY WAY to copy your address book to your SIM in one swoop like it allows you to do in reverse (from SIM to Address Book)?

    Someone say YES, PLEASE!!! Copying 183 contacts one-by-one is not going to be fun.

    If there isn't, is there a setting to make the 8300/Curve save all future contacts to the SIM instead of the internal memory as default?

    No way to copy all contacts at once. Only can do it one by one. Yeah RIM that was pretty lame......

    I know with tmo you can log into my-tmobile and there is a way to type in a bunch at a time and send them, but you can't transfer there either and anyway, you can only use name - number

    Why would you want to deal with limitations like '1 phone number' per contact on the SIM or some limited number of total contacts (255?) on the SIM?

    If the reason is to get a backup, I would suggest syncing to MS Outlook or another PIM on a PC.

    If the reason is to transfer contacts to another phone, get a second phone like a Sony Ericsson, Nokia, or a Motorola that can sync with MS Outlook.

    either solution gives you more functionality, IMO.

    All Sprint-Nextel sim cards hold at the least 150 entries, all the way up to 600 entries, 7 entries per contact. Sorry to hear there are limitations on other sim cards.

    Yeah, I suppose so. A sync to Outlook seems to be my best option. I guess I wanted the convenience of just popping out my SIM and putting it in the next phone. I didn't realize that the SIM doesn't hold all the fields per contact. Thanks for the info Aroc. Hello Outlook...

    vrble, take a lookie at this link. It's for a product/software combo that will likely do what you want. If this isn't exactly what you want, you can google around and probably find something.
