Default SIM Card

Please Login to Remove!

If I change my SIM card from my RAZR to my 8700c shouldn't I be able to see the #'s stored on the SIM card? I only see my address book.

Yes, you should be able to are your contacts that are stored on your sim card. When I switch to my razr, my contacts that are on my sim show up on my razr. Are you sure that the contacts are stored to your sim?

Yes. I have nothing stored on the phone itself.

Weird. Did you double check to make sure that the contacts are actually on your sim. I've had customers who thought they were saving to the sim, but the phone was set up to automatically save to the phone. That could be possible. Otherwise, yet transfer a copy of your contacts from your bb to your sim and then place the sim back in the razr and see if your contacts appear then.

I put it back in my RAZR and it shows all the #'s are stored to the SIM.

Well actually it didn't. I moved my SIM from my work phone (RAZR) to my BB but did not see my contact list.

With my RAZR SIM I could not get EDGE only GSM. When I put the 8700 SIM back in the BB it went to EDGE within a few seconds. Does this mean there is a problem with my RAZR SIM?

Not sure what's going on there, but you can always call customer care. That's usually works when tried before. I'm not sure what's happening there. Good luck to you.

1) Take your RAZR SIM and put into the BB. Go to contacts (or press and hold the green phone button for a couple of seconds) and then select SIM Phone Book from the menu. You should then see your SIM contacts. On a RAZR, if you save contacts to the SIM, you won't be able do attach photos, custom ring tones, or perhaps email addresses to the contact.

2) If your BB shows edge or gprs (all lowercase) it means that the SIM card you're using either isn't enabled for BB data, or there is a network problem preventing your handheld from registering on the BB network. Since your RAZR doesn't do BB functions, it won't have BB data enabled, so your BB will only get you phone and texting with that card.

When you put the BB SIM into the BB, you get GPRS or EDGE because the network has coverage for it where you are, and the BB can register on the BB network.

You're right. Didn't even think about the RAZR SIM card not being data enabled. Thanks
