Welcome to the forums.

Put the SIM card in the device, go into the Address Book, press the Menu button, and on the menu you should see something like 'SIM card Address Book'.

When you see the contacts from the SIM card, you can then click on them and copy them (one at a time only) to the BlackBerry.

Thanks juwaack and miamirulz, I was able to copy all of my contacts from the SIM of my old phone to my BB. The great thing is that there is a copy all function which alllowed me to copy over 400 contacts in a coulpe of minutes.

Thanks again
