Default Contacts - backup or move to sim?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, my 9105 has to go back for repair because dust is gathering under the screen but I was told to copy my contact numbers to my sim card or back them up on my pc but how do I do this. I dont have bb software on my pc so can I copy over to my sim?

Thanks,

You should install Desktop Manager anyway.
Because this allows you to do backups of your phone. When something goes wrong, you'll be glad you had a backup.

Yes you can move contacts to SIM card, but only one by one. And that is, for every number in every contact. So if John Smith has work, home and mobile numbers, you need to copy to sim 3 times for that contact, and so on.
