Default copy to sim

how do you copy ALL your contacts to your sim without going into each individual one?

Wirelessly posted (overwhelmingly stressed)

You can't you have to do them one at a time! Keep in mind if a contact has 3 numbers they count as three seperate entires on the sim

Back up and sync to Outlook. Like most people do. Backing up to a SIM card is useless if you have e-mail addresses.

The problem is that a contact on the phone's memory can have more than one number. Whereas a contact on the SIM card treats every number as a separate contact.
