Default How to copy contacts from BB to SIM

Please Login to Remove!

How to copy contacts from BB to SIM????? Recently I got a new other phone and I want to copy all my BB contact to the other phone (not a BB).. I have tired to find a option in BB to copy contacts to SIM , but I end up finding option to copy contacts from SIM to BB. Is there a way to copy contacts from BB to SIM ?

open adressbook, view contact, scroll to the phone number, than hit menu. you will see copy to SIM option. I thin that is the only way, one by one!

Yes that's the only way.

Also, you only get one phone number per name. Copying the numbers from the BB to the sim is not the way to transfer numbers. I would sync with Outlook and then sync Outlook with your new phone.

You CAN transfer contacts. Just one by one and one number per name only. The sim card holds a very limited amount of data anyway so you'd likely never be able to transfer even a relatively small BB contact list to the sim card anyway.
