Default Transfering tel numbers to Sim Card pls help

Please Login to Remove!

PLease help!!! Is there a way of transfering the numbers from my BB phone book onto the SIM card without having to transfer each number individually? Or is there a bluetooth function that can transfer the numbers onto a new Samsung V900 phone directly?

Thanks

I don't think there is a way to transfer the address book like you want. the best you can do is to transfer them all one by one.

You can transfer the numbers (one by one) to the sim. However, all you get is one name and one number with sim card storage. There is a Bluetooth Address Book Transfer but it doesn't work with all BT devices. If you can get them paired you can try the address book transfer feature but don't be surprised if it doesn't work.

Tried this with my 8800 and my N75. It allowed me to transfer my phonebook, but when I checked the N75, it only had one business card that transferred. It's sad that a great device like a BlackBerry doesn't have a simple feature like transfer contacts to sim.

The feature isn't there, probably, because it would not any good feature, to be able to transfer your address book to the SIM card. The SIM card can handle only one name and phone number per contact. I would lose about 80% of my phone numbers if I did it that way.

You are better off doing this as it is recommended, using Switch Device, if you can.
