My Device: curve 8900

contacts from phone SIM card

i admit, i am a total BB newbie. i just got a BB 8900 curve & was wondering if i could copy the contacts from the SIM card on my phone to the BB? i have put the SIM card from my phone into the BB & have tried to view all the contacts listed. no luck. have tried:

going to contacts

menu->SIM phone book->copy all to contacts

but none of the contacts visible on my phone are visible on the BB - are the two formats (phone & BB) just not compatible?

thank you in advance!

Re: contacts from phone SIM card

The steps you did should have copied the SIM contacts to the BB contacts. When you have problems with the phone the first thing to try is to pull the battery out with the phone turned on, wait 20 seconds and replace the battery. If you still don't see your contacts you may have a view filter active. In contacts click the BB menu button and select options > filter = clear all boxes.
