HOW TO COPY SIM CONTACTS TO COMPUTER FOR SAFE STORAGE

I RECENTLY LOST MY PHONE AND BOUGHT A BLACKBERRY RIM 8310

 

THIS IS A BUSINESS PHONE AND I HAVE OVER 200 PHONE NUMBERS STORED

 

I HAD TO MANUALLY ENTER INFO AND RESEARCH ALL THE NUMBERS

 

HOW CAN I NOW THAT MY NUMBERS ARE ALL ENTERED IN MY PHONE

 

DOWNLOAD THEM SOMEHOW TO MY COMPUTER FOR SAFE STORING

AND THEN IF EVER LOST AGAIN JUST MAYBE BE ABLE TO CLICK A BUTTON AND THEY

WOULD ALL BE ADDED TO MY NEW SIM

 

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ALL YOUR HELP FOR THE TECHNO CHALLENGED PERSON

Use the Desktop software that came with your BBdevice. This will backup and synchronize your calendar, addressbook, tasks. Go to blackberry 101 and it will help you get started

Re: HOW TO COPY SIM CONTACTS TO COMPUTER FOR SAFE STORAGE

It occurred to me that depending on carrier they backup your numbers for you. On Verizon I have the option of keeping a backup on their website under my account.

If you have the same option with your provider, it would worth your while.

You would have all your address book backed up via the desktop software, and on the vendors site.

Let me know what you think, and if you need help with the desktop software.
