    I have copied my address book from the sim card several times to my phone address book. For sum reason nothing appears after the copy screen leaves. Before i changed my phone out i could open my address book and see all contacts not haveing to chose between personal or business filters as well. any thoughs here on either of these problems.

    I did that too. I called tech support. Did I ever feel foolish. I learned something, though...

    unchecked box means not active...so why activate filters? easiest way to save you from losing your numbers is to back-up your phone at least weekly if no bi-daily like i do...that way you never lose anything new...also SIM cards can only hold like some 200 contacts and the rest are lost...back-ups prevent this...hope this helps

    do you back up using the desktop manager tool, or do you just sync with like outlook and save that file as a back up. looking for easy and best way to make a back up of phone data.

    best way is to do a complete back-up with DM...if you go into advanced tab then you can choose exactly which parts of your phone you'd like to save specifically...then after you update make sure you are having it load the backup you made back onto your phone...hope this helps

    Just a quick note about Address Book filters. If you have your Address Book filtered, you will only be able to use the (email) addresses that appear in the filtered view when composing an email.

    To answer the question about copying from the Address Book TO the SIM Card, go into the Address Book, find an entry you want to copy to the SIM card, VIEW it, scroll to the phone number you want to copy, Click the wheel/menu button and select Copy To SIM Phone Book.
