Not quite as efficient as you might hope:

- Open the address book
- Select a contact and View
- Scroll down to the phone number
- Press the menu button
- Select Copy to SIM Phone Book
- Repeat for each contact (sigh)

If you're changing phones, much easier to sync to Outlook and then sync to the new phone. If your changing Blackberry much easier to use the Desktop Manager's Switch Device Wizard.

Ernie's method works but you can only have one phone number per name using that method.

You wont' get all your email addresses, physical addresses, etc. In addition to Ernie's suggestions you can also make backups using Desktop Manager.
