    I have made a huge mistake and overwritten my contact data (names and phone numbers) on my SIM card in my Motorola V3 razr cellular phone.

    I lost like 200+ contacts. I checked various locations and did not have the data backed up. From the phone when I check SIM memory there are only a handful of contacts shown. These are the ones that I had had on the phone. When I went to copy onto my SIM card, I mistakenly hit "overwrite" instead of "merge". Next thing I know pretty much everything is gone.

    Can anyone offer assistance on the possibility of recovering this data?

It sounds like you need a new sim card but if your phone has no sim then you might need your firmware flashed...and no thier is no way to get your contacts back i once sent my phone away to bell and they sent it back empty i could not get them back :(

No unfortunately not once they have been overwritten they are gone. You may want to get a copy of Motorola Phone tools for future use so you can back the phone up to your PC

Transfer contacts list


1. From the standby screen (the first screen when you open your phone), go to the menu.
2. Scroll to the address book and press select.
3. Scroll to the address you wish to copy (or any address if you want to copy all of them) and press the menu key.
4. Go down to copy and press select.
5. Select "Entries" to copy just that one entry or "All to SIM" if you want to copy all your addresses to your SIM card, or "All to Phone" if you want to copy them all to your phone.
6. Select Merge or Override. Merge will combine any addresses that are already on your card with the ones you are now copying, Override will replace anything that is already there with the ones you are now copying. Be careful in deciding which you want to do since Override will delete anything previously saved and merge will duplicate any that were already saved and are being saved again.

Retrieving data from phone memory


you need to get Motorola tools and a data cable so you can plug the data cable into your computer and cell phone. Once connected with MOTOROLA TOOLS you will be able to access both your Phone and SIM card data. You can copy all your data ro your PC and you can print what you want.
You can get a trial version of Motorola Tools that will be good for anywhere from 10 to 30 days off the internet or you can buy "MOTOROLA TOOLS" for v3 online for anywhere from $10 to $30. A data cable can also be purchased online for about $5 to $10.

Transferring phonebook from phone to sim card


The razr that i had could only store 4 numbers on the sim card, your phone book is stored on your phone's memory not your sim. I'm pretty sure that you cannot transfer your phone book over to your sim card.
