Re: Copying contact from phone to the sim

You can't copy 'whole' contacts from the BlackBerry Address to the SIM. It's one number at a time, and if a contact has more than one number, each separately. That's not a good method.

Just do a backup of your current device using the BlackBerry Desktop Software. Then with the new device in hand, you can RESTORE the backup Address Book to the new device.

Or, alternatively, you can use the Switch Device wizard in the Desktop Software to move all of your data from the old to the new.

 Download Desktop Manager from here:
