Open the Address Book > Menu (the key left of the trackball) > SIM Phonebook.

Then you haven't opened the Address Book, or you might have a Pay as you go phone?

I don't think I have a Pay as you Go phone but my T-Mobile Sim card is under one of those flex pay plans. No contract but I have the whole credit check, etc.

 

Seriously, thanks for the help...

Flex pay is like pay as you go, similar.

 

But either way, you have not opened the address book yet. Those are not options in the address book.

When I opened the address book and clicked on SIM Phone book the contacts changed where it just added some numbers to the Check Balance, Check Text Mssg, etc ,.,,,,

 

So are you saying that with a Flex Plan SIM card I can't view my contacts?

No I didn't say that, I read your menu choices which are related to pay as you go plans or in your case, flex pay plans.

 

You have an address book. Open it and go to the SIM Phone card and copy all your SIM contacts to the BB Address Book.
