Default Contacts question

Please Login to Remove!

I got a replacement phone, and when I went to import my SIM card, it was not accurate. I guess I didn't save updates to my contacts list to my SIM card as time went on, and just saved them right to the phone.

so how can i update everything on my old phone to the sim card and make it so on the new phone all the contacts can be how i want them?

and not sure if anything can be done about this but the default setting for a number is "Work" and I had manually changed them all to "Mobile" do I have to re-do that all over again?

If your old phone is a BlackBerry as well, then use the Switch Device Wizard in Desktop Manager. Makes things A LOT easier!

It is asking for a PIN and password.

How do I get the password?

the password is the one set on your device.
if you dont have a password, then leave it blank.

I got it working. I just made a backup of my old phone and put that on my new phone and everything is working great!
