Go to Address book >Click the wheel and select Sim Phone Book. After it loads, click the wheel and select "Copy All to Address Book."

I did that and it worked ... until the next time I went to the adress book. The BB claimed I had a business category but *NO Addresses* !!

I did check options and it did show a ciorrect count of 174. So I redid the copy from SIM to addressbook. And this has been repeated 4 times now.

Am I missing something or is there a way to get it working - and stay working?

Thanks.

Default sim contacts

is it possible to copy contacts from the BB back to the sim? I have added contacts but they don't show up on my sim.

You can copy contacts from the BB to the sim. However, on the sim you get only one number per name and you have to transfer them one by one.

Sounds like you are viewing the address book with a filter. Go to Address Book > Filter and remove any checkmarks. All your contacts will now be viewable.
