Your SIM Card is like a floppy disk, so if you want to permanently add those people from your sim card to your Blackberry - you need to copy from the SIM into the BB Address Book. Otherwise they will be on the SIM Address Book, and you can always go look them up - but they are not saved on the BB itself.

BB: To access your cell phone address book:

  1. Scroll to select the ADDRESS BOOK icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
  2. Press [Trackwheel] again to access the Menu screen for the address book.
  3. Scroll to select the SIM PHONE BOOK and press [Trackwheel] to select.
  4. system should say LOADING SIM PHONE BOOK.
  5. Then if you select the menu - you should have an option to COPY ALL TO ADDRESS BOOK, select YES so it will copy whats on the SIM to the BB Memory..
This will start the download process to read the contacts stored on your SIM card which were copied from your cell phone.

I'm the systems administrator at my company and a user brought their Bold to me with this same issue. The Bold syncs wirelessly with our Blackberry Enterprise server. This issue had nothing to do with the "Contacts" menu option being hidden.

Anytime a user brings me their mobile phone with issues the first thing I do is take the battery out of the phone and leave it out for 60. Reinsert the battery and then turn the phone on.

Removing the battery fixed the contact issue. I could be at the main screen, start typing a name and the contact would appear on the screen.

Sidenote: Before powercycling the phone I noticed when I went to Contacts the user had quite a few contact "Lookups". (These are contacts that have brackets surrounding the name ex. [John Smith] and allow users to find contacts that may be on the Exchange server but have not been added to the users Phone or Outlook Contacts. When the phone powered back on all the lookups were gone but the contact search was working again.
