Is it possible for me to go into my service provider's kiosk and get my address book transfered from my broken phone to the new phone without the sim card inside the old one? It operates without the sim but not when there is a sim inside at the moment. It took me for ever to even get it to do this, I needed to cancel reminder alarms and stuff but I got it to work.
When in the mode without the SIM it works fine. I can get to the settings section where i can change it to Nokia Mode to USB but I know that I can not access the address book on the phone with the phone without the SIM.
Help guys, i need to send this old phone back or they will charge me 70 bucks which I find redicious since I paid for a defective phone from the start it seems. I have had the phone for 8 months and this was the first time I turned the phone off, and when i turned it back on again all this stuff happened and I had no idea all the numbers from my old, old phone that got transfered where transfered to the phone memory and not to the sim and at the same time any new contacts that I gathered in the last 8 months went into the phone memory too. I have NO backups! Sure. Now I have a backup service in place but too late.
I need my 5 years worth of contacts. Please help. I promise I will back up in the future, I already have :-)

There's a program that can reprogram or clone an existing SIM card especially if the SIM card is not working anymore. This can be seen in various forums online. If you're just concerned about transferring all your contact/address book information, you can simply delete all the record of your SIM card and then transfer the new records from your phone to your SIM. One last thing to not is that if your SIM cannot be detected on all phones, then the SIM maybe broken anymore and any data inside it cannot be retrieved anymore since it's a chip issue which cannot be fixed.
If it is a CDMA phone, take it to the service provider and ask them to transfer it to their computer and put it on your USB flash drive or your new phone. If you are using a SIM card (GSM phone) you can transfer the numbers to the SIM card using the phone menu and place the SIM card in the other phone. With a SIM card reader, you can download the information to your computer.
To do this kind of transfer you would use the old phone sims card or memory card to save to the new phone. Another way is to sign in to you cell phone provider website. From there you may be able to download all your items to your new phone. From the computer to the phone wirelessly. You may need their customer service help to guide you thru the steps.
There should be a menu that when you put in a simcard, go to your address book and you can select each contact off the card, then select copy to phone.
when you put back in your new sim card you have the option to transfer your contacts to the sim card, although you will then have duplicate copies of contacts and you will need to delete the contacts off the phone if you wish to keep them on the sim card only.
