Default Help saving all contacts to SIM card

Please Login to Remove!

First let me say this forum has been extremely helpful since i have purchased my curve.. now here is my current problem...

My usb charger port on my phone must have been jerked around or something.. but yesterday i realized my phone will not take a charge anymore..i called tmobile and the new curve has arrived at my house.. but i want to save all my contacts to the sim card...

the main problem is i am not able to sync my contacts thru desktop manager becuase the usb port is not working anymore.. any help on my unfortunate situation would be greatly appreciated... thanks in advance...

if you save them to the SIM card, all it will do is save the name and number, call tmob and see if they have an OTA backup program, i believe most carriers do..

Yikes... This is why I prefer using BES (constant wireless sync).

Saving to sim card really isn't an option. The only other option is Bluetooth. If your computer has bluetooth you may be able to backup/sync via bluetooth.

I've never seen a maximum on address attachments. I've attached 50 before.
