Enable legacy service book restore mode

Hi Folks

With OS 4.7.xxx I can enable legacy SB restore mode by doing this:

Options -> Advanced Options -> Service Book

then ALT SBEB

This doesn't appear to work with OS 5.0.xxxx

Re: Adding contacts with multiple numbers

No, my SIM card has a number of entries for each contact - stored as work, mobile, home, other options available to such as e-mail address etc. My BB is only reading one, prob the first in the list.
