Everytime I ask the z10 to copy contacts from the device TO the sim card (in case I need to switch devices) it tells me not all contacts will be copied shows the new progress scroll circle and then fails to copy contacts. I figured maybe it is the ones I copied over from my 9900 but it also fails to copy contacts I created on my new z10. Please advise. Thank you.

Thank you for the reply and I agree however I have a dilemma that adds a wrinkle. The text message platform on my z10 seems to have some errors as I cannot delet all or generate mypin in a text. The provider is going to swap out my phone but the backup in BB link does allow for a partial backup that is specific to items other than media, applications etc. With this I fear a full backup will import whatever is causing the sms errors. How can I copy my device contacts only?

I just tried this and am new to outlook.com. Since you are not allowed to sign in to your outlook.com on its own I guess I need to create a new one separate from my new alias within hotmail?

I simply synced my hotmail contats and it worked. I was worried that all of my email contacts would import to my phone and they did but that is okay I will delete from pc and it should work. Thanks for your help. Much appreciated.

You can sign in to Outlook.com with your Hotmail ID. There are plans in the works to force all the Hotmail accounts,Live & Msn accounts to Outlook.com. You will still keep your original ID, everything will be there.
There may also be a upgrade button on the right hand side under options in your Hotmail account.

Okay, that all worked but once I have synced the contacts they only remain on phone so long as I keep the sync on. Is there any way to now save them to the device?
