    Yes, Most of my contacts are in sim card before I got iphone!



    But it's doesn't show when i put it in iphone, and yes now i have contacts because i puted in manually.



    Not sure what 411 is? also i didn't see # auto either! But I will check it out some how.

Power cycle the phone first as sometimes it has problems finding the sim contacts if you insert a sim while the phone is already on. Then:Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars>Import Sim Contacts (near the bottom)

    Does your phone have ANY contacts now? Like 411 or #auto or anything like that? It's possible that your contacts were never saved to the sim card in the first place.

I have 3g iphone.i take this from New York to BKK. In NW, it can make phone call when i insert sim card. In BKK, it doesnot work when i insert thailand sim card. Please,tell me how should i slove that...


Probably iphone is Sim locked in U.S like in here. So to solve it you need to jailbreak and unlock it, this is nothing very hard but you need to know current software version of your phone. And it takes some time...

Here is a link where they give you step by step guide, i wont write it here because they have the download links there:

Is it ok to change Sim card? if the sim in my iphone will be transfered to another phone will my contact be erase?


Before when phone memories were smaller, contacts were normally stored on the sim. However, if you consider the iphone, most of its contacts are already stored on the phone memory and not the sim.

most phones memories can be selected manually, either phone memory or sim.

if you are currently using your sim for your contacts and you are transferring to another phone, then your new phone will be able to use the contacts.

if you are currently using your phone memory for your contacts, then the contacts will be retained in your iphone and you won't be able to use them on your new phone.

Move contacts from Tungsten E2 to iPhone


If the Tungsten has a SIM card you can save the contacts to that, put that in the iPhone and go to Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars> Import SIM Contacts. If that isn't a option you may be able to export as VCards and import them into Address Book if you use a Mac. I'm not familiar with a way to do this on a PC. Anyone else have a solution?

Cannot import contact from sim card to iphone 3G


Turn off the iPhone before inserting the sim, insert sim, turn on, import contacts. If you put the sim in the phone without restarting it for some reason it doesn't get all the contacts sometimes.
