Copying all contacts into SIM card

Hi, I have a Blackberry 9780 non camera. All my contacts are stored in the phone memory. How do I copy all the contacts into the SIM card so that I can use it on another smartphone?

Re: Copying all contacts into SIM card

Hello thamtk


Welcome to BlackBerry Support Forums


Here is the KB on how to Copy a Contact to your SIM card :


KB04205 :  Copy a Contact to your SIM phone book


BUT .. Copying contact list from your device to a Sim Card is a lengthy process and SIM contacts will ONLY contain one phone number per contact entry. Your BB Address Book will have a different arrangement with one Contact Name and several fields of information (Cell phone, Work Phone, Home Phone, email address, etc.) if you want to do it that way than you had to do one by one , so the best option will be to sync with your BB Desktop Software.


OR you can refer to this Article which will indeed help on a long run  How To Backup Your BlackBerry


Good luck.
