Default Old sim, new phone, can't find contacts?

Please Login to Remove!

i've just recently bought a new phone, a blackberry 8100, and i've just transferred my sim card, from a sony ericsson, into the blackberry, the problem is, when i open up address book, there are no contacts from my sim card there, it is empty, but i do know that the blackberry acknowledges the sim card's contacts because when i dial a number that was on my old contact list, it will show up as the name.. how do i open up the contacts so that the address book on my blackberry will have all my old contacts in it again?

See if this helps. Its a bit outdated, but should provide the answer to your question.

The Search tool and BlackBerryFAQ answer many questions.

Yeah sounds like the numbers are only your SIM address book, but not your device one.
