Can you copy contacts from PHONE to SIM?

Does anyone know how you copy contact from  your phone memory to your sim card?? I have a backup phone which I use sometime when I go out but when I swap the sim cards over the numbers aren't ont here and I end up retyping them all.

Re: Can you copy contacts from PHONE to SIM?

Hello,

 

See this KB:

  • KB04205Copy a contact to your SIM phone book

To my understanding, it is a one-by-one function and not an "all" function. Mainly I believe this to be due to the fact that the SIM can only contain one phone number per contact while the BB Address Book can contain multiple addresses per contact.

 

Good luck!
