Default Backing up address book to your sim

Please Login to Remove!

I have a spangly new car, with integrated bluetooth gubbins. It will download your address book from the sim card only.

As all of my addresses are on the phone, how do I copy them to the sim?

Many thanks oh wise bbf

The only way I've learned how so far is to go into my address book and transfer then one at a time number by number...
I still believe there is an easier way, but that's what Tmobile told me lol

Translation:

Spangly, as in shiny. The car is less than 24hrs old

Gubbins - English term for stuff that someone doesn't really understand

Hope that helps, can you help on the sim card?

I knew what he meant.. just because i'm cool like that.

And I'm by no means lazy thanks!
I have yet to find another way other than one by one transfer... I'll look into it a little more.. maybe something in Desktop Manager could do it?

If that is true then you wouldn't see a SIM card on your DM unless you had one in your phone. Just like an SDcard.. if it's not in my phone, my DM doesn't pick it up :P

anyway, on topic.. still trying to find a faster way =)

hmmm thats interesting though. thats not how they are made here in the states when it comes to cars. here the car will bluetooth to your device and just play the audio through the car stereo but i think maybe that new microsoft sync system might have a hard drive database.

Have I missed something here? Why would you want your address book in a sound system?

On a BB to move contacts from device to SIM is a 1 by 1 process! Unless there is a store there that has a transfer machine!

Keep in mind most SIM cards will only store 250 contacts and it breaks them up ie;if you have bob and have a work,mobile and home number for him the SiM sees that as 3 entries
