Default How Do I Copy Contacts -TO- SIM Card?

Please Login to Remove!

It is easy to copy contacts from SIM card to device, but is there a way I can copy contacts from my device to the SIM card? My Nokia phones have that option, but I don't see this option on my Blackberry devices. I can enter them manually to my SIM card, but is there an easy way to copy all contacts to SIM?

You cannot copy the full contact to the SIM card. You can copy phone numbers contained in your contacts to the SIM card one at a time. There is no ability to do a mass copy from the contacts to the SIM because the SIM does not have the ability to hold the information contained in the contact.

Yup -- you really need to sync/backup/transfer via a PC. SIM phonebook support is really only there for people coming from a "regular" phone.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish by copying to the SIM phonebook? There may be an alternate method.

You can do it individually... But that would be a tedious process, wouldn't it?
