Default Is it possible to copy all my contacts to my SIM in one shot????

Please Login to Remove!

just as the title says... I recently transfered all my contacts over to my new BB 8320 TMo but i dont want to go one by one copying numbers to the SIM card... is there a faster way or a 3rd party app that does it for you?

there is no way to do that at this time. The SIM only holds a name and 1 number, the BB address book holds alot more than that. its only one per one.

if there was a "copy all" how would it determine which of the numbers you would want copied? or would you want 10 entries for every contact? that way you would only be able to fix 50 unique contacts on the SIM? Also unless you use devices other than the BB, there really is no need to copy to SIM, just backup to the desktop.

SIM cards are simply not designed to hold all of this info.

I had a similar problem when I got my 8310 but since I had all the contacts saved in my outlook @ home I was able to sync my 8310 with outlook and added all my contacts that way.
