Re: copying contacts from phone to sim

Hi, sadly the only way to do this is one by one..what you will have to do is; click on the contact you wish to copy - Press Menu Button and scroll to the top of menu - Select "Copy to SIM Phone Book"; here you can edit the contact as you wish (name etc.) - Press Menu Button and select save.

This is a very tedious function as you can see, but it's only done one by one.

- If my response has helped you, please click "Options" beside my post and mark it as solved. Clicking the "thumbs up" icon near the bottom of my response would also be appreciated.

According to your end need for the contacts, there might be a better solution.. what are you wanting to do with the contact data?

 

A new BlackBerry, or what?

First, from your jellybean, find out how to EXPORT your 1200 contacts to an ASCII or CSV file to your PC.

 

Once you've found that out, let us know in this thread and we can guide you though getting them to your BlackBerry 9800 model.
