Thats because you dident save your contact on the simcard, you contactlist is on the phonememory.

Tricks For the iPhone 3GS OS3

Now I do not know about you, but my <b>iPhone</b> is packaged in a small box suitable for a clock and a small booklet that has the most basic tips you can get. I am ashamed to call the tips were actually instructions so fundamental that everyone should know.<br /> <br /> This allows entrepreneurs to cash in this information gap with upcoming <b>iPhone</b> instruction manuals, and there are tons, but I'm a nice guy, so I'll give you some very useful advice.<br /> <br /> Check your balance<br /> <br /> You probably have many applications for the<b> iPhone</b>, but I searched for network operators in its implementation? O2 (UK), and I'm sure many other networks have their applications that can be used to quickly load and view your balance and left minutes remaining. You can also check your PayPal balance, I really want my bank to perform this function, but I think the banks are very concerned about the safety of doing<br /> Calendar<br /> <br /> Microsoft Outlook and other calendars acknowledged keep your old records indefinitely unless you delete them if you need to register your past activities (work on vacation, spending, the tab turns, etc.), set iTunes to sync your entries earlier.<br /> <br /> Simply connect the<b> iPhone</b>, iTunes loaded, click on the device, select information and choosing the right time to keep records.<br /> <br /> Annoying callers<br /> <br /> If you are persecuted, call the police or call the generations, but if you're just being harassed by an overzealous salesman, hang up, save the number on a "no response" contact (up to 9 allowed) and set a tone silent so when they call again, you do not hear the phone ring<br /> Importing contacts from an old SIM card / phone<br /> <br /> Load your old phone and save all your contacts on SIM card, SIM take your old phone and put it in the iPhone.<br /> <br /> Got to Settings, Mail, Contacts, Calendar<br /> <br /> Click on the "bring your own SIM card and voila, you have all my old contacts from the iPhone, just make sure that the surnames and first names are in the correct order, and the names are not confused with the names (making it easier to find contact information below).<br /> <br /> <br />

I have deleted a number and entered a new number, but when I try to send a text it sends it to the old deleted number, how do I stop this?

you should remove it completely from SIM CARD MEMORY AS WELL AS PHONE MEMORY IN CONTACTS. when you store the same name with a different number sometimes it chooses to send it from the phone memory so it goes back to the same old number. and not the new one which you stored with the same name on your sim card memory. hope this helps. cheers.

I was on network 3 i just left them and joined o2 and got a iphone 3gs im having trouble getting the contacts copyd from my old sim to new phone it gives me the option to copy but doesent copy them


Have you tried putting your old sim into another phone then transferring the contacts to the old phone, then putting your new sim in the old phone and copying the contacts onto the sim, then put your new sim (with copied contacts on) into your iphone and import contacts.

sorry if this seems a little confusing!

Hope it helps!!

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.
