Cant copy the numbers from my phone to my new sim card
All my numbers are stored on my phone- and there are no numbers on my sim card. I want to get the numbers from my phone onto my sim card so i can put my sim card into my new phone with all the numbers on it. so i press "Copy all to Sim" and wait a while and then it says "All numbers cannot be copied". and i have checked i have enough memory space on my sim card for all the numbers in my phone and i do! and it copies half of my numbers to my sim- but randomly- so i am missing half of my numbers for no reason! someone help its driving me insane!

copy the contacts on the sim card to a sd card in the phone. If you don't have one, get one and put it in the phone. Set up the memory in the phone to both sim and memory card. Copy the contacts onto the memory card. Remove the memory card and then go about deleting the contact list in the phone. Put the memory card back in the phone and set the memory in the phone touse the memory card only...not the sim. You're done.
Hi there, Im sorry to hear about your dilemma, lets try and get you fixed.
If you take the sim card out of the broken phone and put it into the other LG, does the phone accept the sim card? (phone may be locked to one network ie 02, vodafone etc)
If the phone does not accept the sim card you will need a new sim that the phone allows, then phone your network provider (for new sim) and tell the customer services you want to keep your old number. (sim out of broke phone)
About the data stored on your boyfriends phone, if the phone does not turn on, the data is lost. Unless it has a memory card inserted and your boyfriends data is stored onto that.
Hope this helps if you need any further help, please comment and i'll get straight back to you
Go to menu and select phone book or contacts then select or press ok in that go to options menu again select copy from phone to sim or sim card then press ok within 2 menates your contacts will copyed phone to sim card.
hi the PUK code is the security code for the sim card so if your phone is telling you that either the sim card is blocked or you have enetered the wrong PUK code more than 5 times so what this has done is blocked the sim card.
all you need to do is call your service provider and ask them to unblock the sim how ever as the sim is sayin PUK blocked then this is telling us that the sim has been cancelled. so what you will need to do is either get a new sim and ask for your number to be transfered onto the new sim or cut your losses and just get a new sim and new number.
the problem is as the sim is saying that to ou the chances are the sim is scrap the PUK code is a security code for the sim card should you lose your phone and someone tries putting your sim in another phone to use it or get your details, so what happens is the sim card asks for the PUK code and this code is between 8 and 11 digits so guessing it is impossible and the only place you can get this code from is your service provider.
i would try giving them a call first just in case they can unblock it for you but the chances are it blockend and it now scrap but if you want to keep your old number all you need to do is get a new sim card and aks them to transfer the number onto the new sim card this way you will keep your old number, how ever you will lose all the info on the sim card such as numbers an texts etc, how ever most phones store this info on the phone so you may find that when you put the new sim card in you should have all your number still because they might be stored on the phone and not the sim.
please let me knowhow you get on or if you need further assistance ok
please could you rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
Yes, the SIM card is what determines the phone number, so putting it in the new phone will have you set up immediately with your number and making calls.
But, sometimes contacts from the old phone were not set to be stored on the SIM. They CAN be stored on the SIM, but that doesn't mean they are always there. You probably have no choice, so try swapping the SIM to a new one anyway and see.
If the contacts and data didn't switch over, bring the phones to your AT&T (or T-Mobile or whoever you use) store and ask if they can transfer the data from one phone to the other for you. They have a machine they can hook both phones up to when the SIM card doesn't have the data saved on it already.
If you've just put your SIM card in your Nokia 5800, you may have noticed a flashing envelope icon at the top of the screen.
This icon indicates that the SIM card's own text message storage is full. This doesn't actually cause problems on the 5800 because it stores its messages in the phone's own memory, but the envelope can look a bit annoying.
To get rid of the flashing envelope:
1. On the standby screen press the white menu button.
2. Select "Messaging"
3. Select "Options"
4. Select "SIM Messages"
5. Delete some or all of the messages from the SIM messages folder using the Options menu.
This should make the flashing envelope go away. You only have to do this once because when the SIM card is emptied it won't fill any more, as the 5800 does not store messages on SIM cards.
Hello???????? Why would you put your personal cell phone info on the internet for eveyone to know???? You do not need that to get the puk code.... If you log onto your companys website under your account and go to the option that says devices you can get the puk code- different than a pin code. If you enter in too many numbers it will permanently block your sim card and you will have to buy a new sim card from your cell phone company- they are about $20
Yes I believe so. Most phones these days store all the numbers in the phone and you must manually transfer them to the sim card. Then by putting the sim card in your new phone you will have your numbers. You can generally then transfer the numbers to your new phone, as it is handy to have them in more places than less. This way you have the freedom to change sim cards but always have access to those numbers for example.
