How To Copy Phone Numbers To Your SIM Card

40 Comments

Sim Card
A SIM card stands for Subscriber Identity Module, on most mobile phones the SIM card is the place where it holds the address book and SMS messages. The SIM card is less important on the Blackberry because the address book is stored on the built-in flash memory or it can wireless sync your Outlook address book. But their may be a time where you want to retrieve the address book off a SIM, especially when you are a new Blackberry user coming from a regular mobile phone and want to import your contacts. We have already told you how to import your whole address book, but here’s how to selectively add a contact to your SIM card:


1. On the handheld Home screen, click the Address Book icon.
2. Select the contact containing the phone number you wish to copy.
3. Click the trackwheel and select View.
4. Select the phone number, click the trackwheel, then select Copy to SIM Phone Book.
5. Click the trackwheel and select Save.

Note: If you receive the message “Not enough room in SIM,” delete the SMS messages on the Phone screen and delete the entries in the SIM Phone Book.

    To copy from sim to address book: On the blackberry curve, open address book, select ‘SIM Phonebook’ from your blackberry menu, you should see your sim phone #’s. now select the kenu again and choose ‘Copy all to address book’

    HELP!
    I’m trying to copy my contacts from my blackberry to my SIM, but it keeps saying “Not Enough Room on SIM”, that statement would make sense, however my SIM card is empty! Please help!

  • Dmorrisconst

    is there a way to save all contacts on the sim card without going to each one and saving it individually

  • Hotrodstew

    To import all contacts, complete the following steps:

    On the BlackBerry smartphone Home screen, click Contacts.
    Display the menu and select SIM Phone Book. The SIM phone book is loaded.
    Display the menu and select Copy All To Contacts.
    Go back to the contact list and make sure all of the entries are displayed.

  • sarabara

    This is copying from SIM to BB. We are looking to copy from BB to SIM so we can put our SIM card in a new phone. For those of us who have hundreds of contacts, one by one is not a viable option. Does BB not support this?
