View Full Version : Question about SIM/Categories for 7100i...

11-08-2005, 05:51 PM
I know you can copy all of your SIM contacts to your BB but is there a way to copy them all to the SIM? Or is there an automated way to mark all contacts categories as personal?

I'm about to connect to my server but I want all of my current numbers (non business) to be on my sim or the ability to filter them by category. Since I currently have 350+ personal contacts, one by one isn't an option.

Thank you so much for your help,

i think one by one is the only option, I know it is on the 7520

I actualy download the DevKit and was thinking about writing my own app but that's a pain too.

Put the SIM in a sim reader and use Dekart's sim utiility.

If you have a laptop with a smart card slot (like the cards used on Satellite TV) (such as the Dell D600 or D610) or one of those freebies with the cool credit cards. You can tape your SIM back into place in the credit card it came in, slide it in and read it and add stuff to it.

You can even export the data to a text file and import it back into the sim.

if we take it to a TMobile store, can they do that for us? I am just wondering if somebody tried this option ...

Unlikely, store employees are paid by selling things not helping people. They probably don't have any bb software there.

Update: you can do this using the BlackBerry Desktop
