Moving all Contacts to SIM?

I am changing from a 9700 to a 9790. I have a ton of contacts in the old phone's internal memory and need to move them all to the SIM card so I can pass the info into the new phone. Is there a way to copy all the contacts at once to the SIM card? Otherwise I'll spend a week moving them one by one.

Hi jgazolm

 

Welcome to BlackBerry Support Community Forums

 

 

No on our BlackBerry smartphone you can't copy all Contacts to a SIM card at once ,If you want to Copy you have to do it one by one because BlackBerry Address book is much more robust it will have a different arrangement with one Contact Name and several fields of information (Cell phone, Work Phone, Home Phone, email address, etc.) whereas SIM card the SIM card allows only one entry per phone number .

As you are switching from 9700 to 9790 the best option will be switch device wizard using BlackBerry Desktop Software it will transfer all your datas from your old device to the new one.
