    Contact list on sim card

    Advertisement



    Is it possible to copy all the onboard device contacts to the sim card on a 8100? I have a spare phone that i would like to use everyonce in a while. so that i dont have to bring my precious BB to certain places. RI like to have my contacts placed on the sim card, so all i have to do is move the sim to the other phone. I might be blind, but i did not see anything on pinstack about doing it.

    If I remember correctly when I traded in my Pearl for the Curve I had to copy the address book entries one by one to the SIM, also I think you can only have one number per name on the SIM address book.

    In a menu that the At&T rep showed me was a Copy to SIM option, but there was no "copy all" option.

    i was kidding on the 600+ i only have about 350 or so contacts that i really just need to add to the sim so i can move it to another device easier. Im not sure how many contacts can hold on my sim. I got the biggest sim card i think. Unsure what the sizes are. Im thinking there was a 32k and a 64k but i could be wrong.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    It would say on the sim card the size you have. I'm just lazy right now to pull the battery to get to mine to see but I'm pretty sure mine is a 64k.

    Re: Contact list on sim card

    It has been my experience that most sims only hold 250 entries, unless ATT has changed in the few mos since I left!

    You are correct thbass, currently in the US the largest sim card available from Cing or T-Mobile will only store 250 contacts.
