Download desktop manager from RIM ( free) to your PC and do a device swap.

Do the following steps;

1. Open Contacts.
2. Display the menu and select SIM Phone Book. The SIM phone book will be loaded.
3. Display the menu and select Copy All to Contacts.
4. This will add all contacts to your BlackBerry Contacts list.

Check your contacts on the device to ensure that they transferred properly. Hope it will helps.

I think there should not be any confusion after Anjali's answer hence if you face any problem, you should search some video on youtube. A practical demo will make things quite easy.
