Many people’s first instinct when they get a new mobile device is to import their contacts from their SIM card. Luckily, copying from your SIM card to your device is a quick and simple process, and only takes a couple of minutes. Unfortunately however, copying from your phone to your SIM card can be a bit tedious if you want to copy a number of contacts. Nevertheless, here’s how to do both:
To copy from SIM to phone
1) Enter your contacts application and press the menu key. Choose SIM Phone Book.
Here, you will see all contacts currently stored on your SIM card.
2) To copy an individual contact from SIM to phone, highlight the contact and press the menu key. Choose Add to Contacts
Choose which contact list to copy it to, and enter any other details.
To copy all contacts from your SIM card to your BlackBerry device, go to your SIM Phone Book, press the menu key, and choose Copy All to Contacts
To copy from phone to SIM
1) Enter your contact list and click on the contact you wish to copy to your SIM card. Press the menu button and choose Copy to SIM Phone Book.
Unfortunately there is no way to transfer all contacts to you SIM card at once, so you’ll have to do it one by one. If you’re switching from one BlackBerry to another, you may want to consider using BlackBerry Desktop Manager to back-up your contacts.
