    I would like to copy some of the entries in my Address Book to my SIM Card so I can have them handy whenever I need to use my backup phone, a RAZR.

    Forgive me for being a novice, but is there a way to Copy All To SIM Phone Book from the Address Book?

    If there is a way, I'd like to know as well...

    Re: How to: Import SIM Contacts

    hendrix1982, Welcome to PinStack.

    First, I don't think you can copy addresses to the SIM, only Phone Numbers. and you have to copy them one at a time. To do this you have to be on the Phone number before it will let you copy to the SIM.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Re: How to: Import SIM Contacts

    Just wanted to say thanks for this post. As a BB newbie, I was starting to pull my hair out at the thought of having to xfer each individual SIM card entry over to my BB address book.

    Thanks again!

    I just tried this on my Pearl and I don't get the option to Copy All To Address Book. I only get the option to copy one by one.
