Hi MyGreenAge


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums



Good question..Smiley Wink I think we can try  both BUT as we all know SIM contacts will only contain one phone number per contact entry. Our BlackBerry Address Book will offer different arrangement with one Contact Name and several fields of information like Cell phone, Work Phone, Home Phone, email address, etc.So the best option is to save it on phone also, so that we can save our contacts using BlackBerry desktop software or BlackBerry Protect which can be restored anytime to any BlackBerry in case if our device got stolen or lost  ,


So saving Contacts to our phone is MUST but you can also save a single contact number to your SIM Card also which sometime helps on certain situations if using that same SIM on another device.
