Transferring Contacts from SIM Card

I have tried to use the option to transfer my existing contacts from my SIM card to my new BB but nothing happens.  When I first went through set up the device displayed a message that there were contacts on the SIM card and asked if I wanted to transfer them to the BB - although I selected yes, none were transferred.  I have tried a few times to do this manually since but nothing is copied.


My previous phone was not a Blackberry but I only had very basic contact details of names and phone numbers stored so I would have thought the BB should be able to cope with this.


Any thoughts on how I can avoid retyping my whole address book!?
