WHEN YOU ENTER NEW CONTACTS HOW DO YOU ENSURE THEY GO TO YOUR SIM CARD AND NOT THE PHONE? I HAD AN ISSUE WHERE I HAD TO DO A SYSTEM REBOOT AND LOST 95% OF MY CONTACTS.


The LG GT540 is an Android OS phone. It is a great Operating System since it gives you the ability to actually back up your contacts to GMail. I would suggest you do this instead of the SIM card since if your phone or SIM card become corrupted or lost, you can easily restore from the "cloud."
Although each manufacturer changes the user interface slightly, under the "MENU" you should find an "ACCOUNTS" setting. There you should be able to sync to GMAIL.
I have used an Android based phone for 3 yrs + now and have been able to easily restore all contacts this way after doing restores or upgrading to a new handset.
