Re: PhoneBook access problem

You'll need your security code. If you didn't make one try "0000" or "the last 4 of your phone number". 1. Press menu in the "stand by mode" 2. Select "settings" and "security settings" 3. Select "Memory" if will ask for your code. 4 you now have the option of either using the "phone memory" or the "SIM memory" or "both". Try both. See what happens then try phone only. Its up to you. Here's the link:

No memory available on SIM How to clear this?

it depends in which terms your memory is full.. The sim card has the capability of storing some sms as wel as some phonebook entries. in order to empty your sim card,
1) in phonebook, tap on more, then move contacts and then select sim to phone. then all your contacts memory on the sim will be back.
2) In messages, some messages will have a sim mark on the icon. For those messages,open them, select more and select move to phone.. You will have to this for all the messages on the sim card.

After doing these two steps, your sim card will have free space.
Good Luck..

Samsung s8300 how do i speed dial using keyboard

Hi, I found a way to get Speed Dial on the Eternity or Ultra Touch . As follows: [most of this from Phonebook/More/Settings/1 ]

1. Copy all address book entries from Sim to Phone Memory.
2. Delete all Sim Address book entries.
3. Switch Address book source to Sim.
3. Re-enter up to 99 speed dial entries in Sim, in the exact order you want them to be assigned to speed dial.
4. Switch Address book source back to Phone Memory.
From now on all numbers on the Sim will be in Speed Dial and you will view the address book from phone memory. Of course any number can be in both places.
Now to speed dial just enter 1#, 2# etc for any number in the Sim Address book. You will get to view and confirm the entry and then dial. In a way this is even better then the speed dial functions on older Samsungs, as the preview before dialing ensures you have the right speed dial entry.
I think it works fine. dk

I have a nokia n95-1. I have copied sim contacts to the phone which have duplicated when I synchronised with Outlook. I can cope with that. What I dont understand is why the numbers of any of my contacts...

When you receive a phone call, the phone will look up in it's address book to see if it can find a match for that number, if there is only one match, great, it will display it, if there is more than one match, it would be difficult for the phone to 'guess' at who is calling, so instead it just displays the number.

First make sure you do not have duplicate Entries for the same number.
I would suggest you to do the following:
  1. Make sure you have copied all the contacts from your SIM to Phone
  2. Delete all the Entries from your SIM by selecting them at once
  3. Make sure you do not have any Duplicate Entry in the phone book
  4. If you suspect having duplicate entries, Sync. the phone with Outlook and search for Duplicate entries to delete them

Please make sure you have selected the default memory as SIM and Phone. If you have stored your contacts in the Address book of your Phone memory and selected the Sim card memory as the default phone book it is obvious that when receiving a call your phone will try to look for that number in the default memory selected by you or vise-versa.
Go to phonebook > Settings > and select the memory in use as Phone and SIM

Hope it is not confusing

Please get back for any clarification

What is the capacity of Phonebook of this phone

Phonebook: 100 entries Call records: 10 dialed, 10 received, 10 missed calls
This is the capacity of your phone. And in addition to that, you can still use your SIM card capacity, and SIM card's phonebook capacity changes from operator to operator. (Depends on the technology of your SIM card, you can ask this information from your operator.)

How can we get phone book from 6681 nokia, to orion 901ds.

The Nokia phone book format is totally incompatible with the Orion 901DS. What the Orion 901DS lacks in phone book capabilities, it more than makes up in terms of price (cheapest quadband GSM phone ever!), quadband, bluetooth, radio, handsfree loudspeaker, a sweet game, and dual standby SIMs. But I digress. Back to the issue of transferring phone books. The ONLY way is to copy all the data to your SIM Card in your Nokia phone, take out that SIM Card, and put it in your Orion 901DS. The Orion 901DS phonebook format is very restrictive. Once you have the data on the SIM Card, you can transfer it to the Orion 901DS's phone memory, and put in the remaining information that's allowed in the Orion 901DS. Hope this helps!

Names won't display in inbox


In my many years of using Nokia phones, I noticed that when there are duplicate entries on both SIM card and Phone memory, the names will not appear when they send you messages. You may try to check your phone and sim memory if the numbers are stored on both and delete the duplicate or choose just one memory to use, whether it be the SIM or phone memory to avoid conflicts.

Happy Holidays!

Nokia 6233

The problem is most likely because on your previous phone the names and numbers were stored on the phone memory and the sim card memory. Before removing your sim card from the old phone, you first need to copy all names and numbers from the phone memory to the sim memory and then when you transfer the sim card to the new phone you should have all the names and numbers as before. Just beware of a few potential problems. First, sim memory only generally allows entries of 14 characters and secondly there is often a limit to the overall capacity of names/numbers to 250 or maybe 300. So if you have a huge directory, you will in effect need to copy the data in blocks of say 250 entries from one phone memory to the other using the sim card as a portable memory device or else try a phone shop like Carphone Warehouse who might just do the whole job for you.

Transferring phonebook from phone to sim card

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.
