    I have the same phone and I have broken my screen and cannot see most of it and therfore cannot find the 'copy' option although I do know that i am in the contacts menu. Can someone tell me the exact buttons to press on the keypad and the right amount of times to press them so I can save my contacts to my sim. Thanks MIKE

Search for the contact you want to copy and select Options > Copy. You can copy

names and phone numbers from the phone contact memory to the SIM card

memory, or vice versa. The SIM card memory can save names with one phone

number attached to them.

I want to copy my contacts to my sim.I am using a HTC Wildfire S phone and i have got a new phone.WQhen i put the sim i am using now into my new phone there is no contacts

To transfer contacts from your current phone to a new phone by means of a SIM card, do the following:
  1. On your current phone, download the Copy to SIM Card app on the Google Play Store.
  2. Use the app to write all your current contacts that will fit on the SIM card.
  3. After writing is complete, put the SIM card in new phone.
  4. If new phone has built in SIM manager, use that to transfer contacts from SIM. If not, again use Copy to SIM Card to transfer contacts from SIM to phone.

Sim card used in samsung phone (contacts saved to sim) when transferred to nokia c5 it doesnt show any contacts. I've tried in another nokia and its fine

You have to set the memory of your current phone, change it to sim memory so that you can retrieve the number save in your sim.

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.

The screen on my nokia 5140 has gone psychedlic...lots of colors. The phone works but I can't see any screens and I want ot dowload all my numbers from the phone memory to the sim card or my computer...

Heres how it is on my 5140i (the menu should be the same)

Turn the phone on

MENU ONCE - this opens the menu
DOWN ONCE - down to contacts
MENU ONCE - open contacts
MENU ONCE - opens names
LEFT SELECT ONCE - (the one above the green phone symbol) this opens options.
UP ONCE - gets you to copy
MENU ONCE - selects copy
MENU ONCE - selects copy FROM phone TO sim
MENU ONCE - confirms selection
DOWN ONCE - selects ALL contacts
MENU ONCE - confirms selection
LEFT SELECT ONCE - YES to copy contacts

Go make a tea or have a beer and come back to it in about 5 minutes, swap your sim to another phone and hey presto

hope that helps :)

Copying contacts without a screen - nokia 5300

There is a gadget you can buy which will read your SIM card and copy the data to a PC to give you a back up for just this problem. Also some phone shops offer this service for a fee. And I believe some operators will store your data on-line, but I haven't tried this.
