Instead of doing that, why not do a backup of the old blackberry, and then restore "Only the address book" to the new blackberry.

You don't. SIM phonebook support is there for people migrating from a "regular" phone to the BB. Once on the BB you need to sync/backup with a PC.

The SIM phonebook only hold 1 name and 1 number per entry. Anything else (email address, other phone numbers, mailing addresses, etc etc) won't be copied to the SIM phonebook.

Sounds like you're not currently syncing/backing up. Make sure that you do. Mobile devices are easily lost/stolen/broken/etc.

You have to copy them to the SIM card one-by-one. Fun, huh?
And like takeshi says, only one number and one email address per SIM contact. All other info gets stripped off the contact when saved to the SIM.
