Question Backing up data to my Mac....PLEASE HELP!!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys, I've run into a big issue here and I'm wondering if anyone can help me out.

My Pearl has pretty much bit the dust (some very important keys are broken and the phone is pretty much useless). I have a backup phone (Razor) and will simply just pop the SIM card in there...HOWEVER....all of my contacts etc are not on the sim card....they're just data on the pearl. I need to somehow save my contacts to that SIM card and then use that in my backup phone. I have a Mac though, which is another problem. I downloaded PocketMac and can't seem to figure out if it can solve my issue.

If anyone has any suggestions I would much appreciate it. Thanks a lot

You're in a bit of a bind here. You can use the phone to transfer numbers to the sim card, however, the sim card only holds one number per name. you have to choose which number you want to save with the name.

You can't use Desktop manger with Mac so you can't do a "backup." You can use PocketMac to sync your contact list with your Mac and then sync with a new phone (not sure about syncing with a Razr.)
