Re: screen died

To retrieve your numbers you would need to follow these key strokes...

center, toggle down (1 time), center, toggle up (2 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center, toggle down (5 times), center (3 times)

then wait for quite some takes a while to copy all of the contacts...I would say anywhere from 5 to 10 mins...

this should work to save your contacts.

To save your pictures (and any other data you might want to retrieve) you could buy Sony's data cable for the z525a. I haven't tried this but it should work since that is what the cable is for.

Its called a DCU-60 USB data cable, and is listed as being compatible with the z525a.

Im trying to get pictures from motorola razor phone but is asking me to insert a sim card and i dont have one at all i lost it ... and i want to know is there any way i cant get pictures from this phone...

You can use P2K phone commander, it can dump all the phone data even with no sim card inserted.
Here you can get the program and the drivers
Do not delete anything! Since this software is not official and you can access some system files with it, deleting stuff at random will lead to unpredictable results

Have dropped my phone and screen has died,how do i navigate menu in order to save all numbers on phone to sim card?

Connect your phone to a computer having Nokia PCSuite installed. After connection is successful, you will be able to see all your contacts on phone on the computer, and can even save them as vcf files.

I don't know how to remove the SIM card in my Kyocera Candid KX16

If your phone has a SIM card it will be under the battery. Your contacts only are on the SIM if you choose to store them there or copy them there. In order to save the pictures to the new phone you need a data cable.

Phone sporadiacally displays "insert sim card" even though it has a sim card inside (never been taken out). Switching off the phone and switching it on again was what i did. However recently my...

it could be that the contacts between the phone and the sim card are dirty and therefore you will get the error code. take the battery out and remove the sim card take a q-tip with some rubbing alchohol and clean the contact on sim card and the phone itself make sure not to use alot of alchohol. let them air dry then re-insert the sim and battery this should do the trick. the error warning should go away and the phone will be abale to receive the contact info from gthe sim card.. please rate this

SIM Card

Verizon is a cdma network and does not use sim cards you will have to go into the store to get the phone switched (they might charge you $20) or call customer service (1-800-922-0204) or do it online yourself by logging on to the vzw my account website.
