I am a newbie - so all of you 'Blackberry Vets' be gentle if I am wrong.
Address book information is NOT stored on the SIM card of a Blackberry like it is on a cell phone. In order to get your Address Book information from your old BB to your new BB is one of the following ways:
- Back up your old Blackberry using the Blackberry Desktop manager, and restore the data to the new Blackberry
- Sync your old Blackberry with some application (i.e. Outlook or Outlook Express), then Sync the new one with the same application
- Manually input the data
No matter how you slice it, you will require the information from your old Blackberry.
