Unhappy How to copy address book to SIM card ???

Please Login to Remove!

I have a serious delimna. I went from a Blackberry to a Simsuing cell phone. I was able to transfer my bberry phone number (sim card) to the new cell phone, however, none of my bberry contacts are on the sim card. I've since put the sim card back into the bberry but cannot figure out how to copy my 700+ address contacts to the sim card. HELP PLSssssssss!!!!

One by one. And you only get one number per name.

If you go to the mytmobile web site and go to communication tools>>type a text message.

Then look up in the right side and find the "resources" box. Click on "manage address book".

It lets you type in a list of names, with a single number each and send them all to your phone.

Supposedly they go to the SIM card, but I haven't tried it.

Hey, you know, I forgot about that. It does work. I tried it once, just to see, when someone else posted about it a few months back. It's still one by one though.

shoulda just stuck with the blackberry and re-synced your phone to dump the new ones...otherwise...sync your bb into outlook, and sync your new phone into outlook...should dump all your contacts

If you use Outlook and can sync with the new phone this is definitely the way to go.

Check the Linux users area as there is alway Syncje... It gives a 15 day trial and you can sync them both up long before the 15 days is up...
