    I have done this but one address at a time. An excellent cure for insomnia!

    One address at a time....if you start now, depending on how many numbers you have, you might be done by Christmas! Just kidding . Maybe you can send your phone to N8DBB and he'll put all your numbers on the card for you , LOL thats a really big joke!!!

    While in your address book click the trackwheel on whichever contact you want, and near the top you should see copy to sim. If you dont see that option, click the trackwheel and choose sim phonebook, let the whole phonebook load then click the back button, repeat this until you see the option for copy to sim.

    Re: Saving Address To Sim Card

    I truly appreciate your help but I don't see that option and when I go to the sim phone book I only have one entry...once it loads and I go back that option is still not available...I am using a BB 7290 version 4.1.0.292...Any other advice?

    Did you try it a couple times? I have to try at least 5 times for it to appear. Anyone with Cingular have any advice for MrsMimi?

    Re: Saving Address To Sim Card

    Try this...

    Open your address book....

    Scroll to the person you are wanting to copy to your sim card, and click VIEW

    When their information comes up, scroll down to the PHONE NUMBER under view, and then click your trackwheel....

    Towards the top of the menu you should see an option that says COPY TO SIM PHONE BOOK...

    If you do NOT scroll down to the phone number, that option will NOT appear, so make sure that you scroll down to the phone number...

    When you click COPY TO SIM PHONE BOOK, you will see the name and telephone number under the title "Phone Book Entry".

    Click your trackwheel again, and click save.

    Let me know if you have any problems..

    if there is any information in the address book listing other than a phone number, it won't allow you to save it to your SIM. It can only copy phone numbers, not street addresses or email addresses.

    Re: Saving Address To Sim Card

    LOL sorry but this is kind of silly. How can there not be a copy all numbers to SIM option? I have had all types of phones from really cheapo ones to fairly decent priced ones. Now that I finally got a Blackberry and expect some cooler features, I get options taken away that the crappy phones had.

    no one's seen any software to solve this problem?
