Re: HOW DO I COPY CONTACTS TO SIM?????

That`s why BlackBerry will lose more and more customers!!! Can you imagine, they don`t have this simple option "Copy all to SIM"...

Why? Because it's a stupid function to have! A SIM card can ONLY hold a limited number of phone numbers, it can ONLY hold phone numbers, no addresses, emails, etc., and users will walk away thinking they have copied ALL their address book over, and WHAM, when they insert into a new device, only phone numbers and they'll be fuming.

 

There are better, SMARTER, ways to do this.

Re: HOW DO I COPY CONTACTS TO SIM?????

Speaking of stupid functions, there are budget mobile phones on sale today, without the capability to store contact details other than a name/primary phone number. I would like to know the best migration step in this situation, and don't suggest upgrading the phone because that is not an option.

Mike, I am confused now about what you're asking... you want to know "the best migration step" to a "budget mobile phones"?

 

Any one model/manufacturer specific?

The Samsung E1150i would be a good example

Ok, then simple, find out from Samsung if it will import simple CSV delimited text files, and if so, then you'll want to export your Address Book from the BlackBerry, using the BlackBerry Desktop Software to export your contact data to a CSV file.

Re: HOW DO I COPY CONTACTS TO SIM?????

Ok, well, I don't know squat about Samsung phones.

But, if you can determine from Samsung how to import the CSV or common text file, your BlackBerry will export what is needed.
