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

By all means, yes, use the export method with Desktop Software 6.

That is much easier.

 

I'd say check out the new BlackBerry10 devices, launching on January 30th! You'll love it.

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

We are all stuck with these blackberry devices not because we have a choice but because we bought them. Blackberry is good if you've never owned any other non blackberry smart phone

Of course, that's your opinion. I've owned other Smartphones... BlackBerry still reigns in its field.

Sorry you don't agree.

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

So my end need is that I need to hand my phone in for repairs as it has decided it has a mind of its own.

 

It disconnects from the Network at random, it is slow, it has now decided that I will not hear the person talking to me on the other side so I have to activate my speakerphone to have conversations.

 

So in order to have this all looked at I need to copy my Contacts to my SIM otherwise it will all be lost when I get the phone back, as I understand things.

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

Yeah, I got that, thanks - that I now have to copy each one of my contacts, one by one, to my SIM. By the time I'm done I'll be due for my next upgrade.

 

Thanks anyway!

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

[ Edited ]

Review this thread... there are easier ways to do this, but you want them specifically copied to your SIM card.

You can backup and restore the BlackBerry when it is returned from repair.

If you are getting another different make device, there are other options, apps in App World which can backup to a CSV file to be imported elsewhere...

 

But to answer your specific question, it's one at a time. You will get one phone number per name.

No email addresses, nothing else. Is that what you want?

And that limitation is not a BlackBerry limitation, it is how SIM cards are designed, name and phone number only.

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

JSanders, we are not haters and I understand you are just trying to do your job.

I recognise that I only recently had my first BB as I was issued one in my company. BB may have been good in the past, I won't know as I never had one before the smartphone existed.

 

To export your BB contact to an Android phone (names, phone, email, ...)

 

1. Pair your BB with your Android phone via Bluetooth
2. On the BB, select the paired device using the BB ball
3. Choose Transfer Contacts

 



All you contacts will be sent to your Android phone as vcf files which will be stored on your Android phone and will be easily imported.

I realise this won't export to a SIM, but not only it's free but it also don't require extra software (BB Desktop) to be installed

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

Good suggestion, one of many to do transfer all contacts.

As you said, not to the SIM card.
