How do I transfer the address' in the old sim to the new sim. Sales mens said to put old sim in new phone and transfer them to the new phone memory. Then put the new sim into the new phone and transfer from the phone memory to the new sim. I can't fine how to do that in any of the literature or help information.
It's not anywhere in the literature. Before you remove the sim from the old phone copy the address book into the old sim. Then take the old sim out of the old phone and then put it in the new phone. Copy from the old sim into the new phone. Then take out the old sim and put in the new sim and copy from the new phone into the new sim. Your all set.

Go to your address book. Find the listing you want to transfer to your SIM card. Select it and then go to EDIT. Now scroll down to where it says STORE TO: It will either say PHONE or SIM. If it says PHONE you will need to select CHANGE. This will allow you to select between PHONE and SIM. Change it to SIM and click on SELECT. It is now saved to your SIM card. Have a great day!
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.
I had the same problem going from my Nokia to the V3. The Nokia could store multiple #'s under the same contact, the Motorola can't.
You can go through each contact and change the "Type" by highlighting your contact... Options, Edit.Then you have to decipher the icon to the right of each contact.
Or you can Edit the name by doing the same and adding.."Home", "Cell", etc. Also a pain.
I ended up buying Motorola Phone Tools so I could do all the editing, downloading, and back ups on my PC. Very simple.
Whether you store the contact on the phone or memory card does not affect how it is displayed.
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.
