In this manner of copying to your SIM card, you are stuck with very little.
RIM, on the other hand, has provided you with three other options to preserve your data. Boo all you want, but it is your personal responsibility to do your own back up or sync.
Likewise, RIM provides a BES solution. The solutions are available--you just have to use them.
I understand how SIM cards work and what they can/cannot store. I'm not looking for it to store anything more than the name and number.
With this 8100 phone, you do NOT have the option to copy from phone book to SIM card like you do with Nokia, Motorola, and Palm. This most certainly IS a RIM issue.
The BES solutions are available... but are not easily obtainable all the time like an option in the menu would be. Even if it were one by one I would be happy with that... but it's desktop sync or bust. So BOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
