Hello,

 

While the above answer is technically correct to your question, a deeper question might be "what are you trying to accomplish?". The SIM is a very poor medium for storage, backup, or transfer of Contact List items...the BB Contact List app is so much more robust than the simple SIM Phone Book that you will lose a lot of data as well as functionality by using the SIM phone book for any means. If the desire is to transfer your Contact List data elsewhere, there are many other much better means to accomplish that. If the desire is to backup the data for safety, there likewise are many other better means.

 

So, if you truly don't care about any of this, then you can ignore this. But, if it matters, then if you tell us what you are trying to accomplish, I am quite certain that we can give you much better means to accomplish it.

 

Good luck and let us know!
