    copy contacts from address book to sim card...how?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, one quick question thats probably easy, but i just cant figure it out myself.

    If I ever wanted to get a new phone down the line, I would like to be able to take my contacts with me right? So.. the thing is i'm trying to copy contacts saved on my blackberry's address book to the sim card, but how do I do that? If i go to the setup wizard, it just says copy from the SIM to Blackberry, but i want it the other way around: Blackberry To SIM.

    So once again, How do I copy contacts from the blackberry address book to the sim card?

    Thanks for the help! These forums are awesome.

    You have to do it one at a time.

    Go to the contact>Open it up>Scroll down to the phone number>hit Menu>Scroll up to Copy to SIM Phone Book.

    That's the only way.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~unfortunately you have to do it one by one and you can only store one number associated with that contact...not to mention you cannot have a picture associated with that contact. Jeez could I be any more negative? On the brighter side...you will have your contacts for your next phone!!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ or you could always just stick with a BlackBerry and just back your address book up and just load it on your new phone

    If you have Microsoft Outlook or something you can sync your address book with it and then it would be easier to transfer than doing them one by one.

    don't trust your SIM...if you only save there and it gets corrupted then what?!...plus you can only save like 250-300 contacts anyways...don't know about you but my SIM can't hold all my numbers even if i did just end up choosing 1 phone number for my contacts...back up with DM and/or outlook that way you can always have a copy of your address book no matter what phone you decide to switch to
