Exclamation Blackberry 9700. How can i copy all contacts from sim to phone?

Please Login to Remove!

The question above sounds quite simple but here is the thing, i just upgraded from my SE w880i to the new BB 9700 Bold. before taking our my sim from the SE i copied all my contacts on to my sim and made sure they were there, and they are. Then i took it out and inserted it into my new BB and opened the contact list it was empty. obviously cuz the phone is new so i went to the options and chose to copy sim contacts to phone and it did. But here comes the problem, alot of my ocntacts arent there and the way ot copied the contacts is sooo weird !? so i checked the contacts directly on my sim and turns out its the same. so i think the BB is not reading all the contacts on my sim properly .. so plz help .. heeeelp ...

You can import phone data from a Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card to the contact list on your BlackBerry smartphone.

To import a single contact, complete the following steps:

On the BlackBerry smartphone Home screen, open Contacts.
Display the menu and select SIM Phone Book. The SIM phone book is loaded.
Select the contact you want to import, then select Add to Contacts.
In the New Address screen, type any additional information.
To import all contacts, complete the following steps:

On the BlackBerry smartphone Home screen, click Contacts.
Display the menu and select SIM Phone Book. The SIM phone book is loaded.
Display the menu and select Copy All To Contacts.
Go back to the contact list and make sure all of the entries are displayed.
Note: Contacts in the contact list can be saved to the SIM card individually. You cannot import data from the contact list to the SIM card.
