Question about LG MG280 Cellular Phone

Can't save contacts on LG MG280

Hi, I'm having problems with an LG MG280 I just got. Well I had all my contacts in the SIM card, then i transferred all of them to the phone memory. For some reason I turned the phone off, and when it was back on the contacts were not there anymore! I tried it a few times and it always deletes after you turn it off and on again.. So basically I can save my contacts, but only on the SIM card. Therefore I can not use the special features for contacts like e-mail address or photo of the contacts.
Any ideas on how to solve this?

(btw, It's in Ecuador and the operator is Movistar)

How can I transfer contacts from another phone to the LG KU990. also can you use a memory card with the LG KU990 I want to transfer all my info from a Nokia 6720c to the LG KU990. Thank you Lyn


You can transfer your contacts to sim card by going to contact menu then mark it ALL,then put your simcard to another phone like nokia and then upon opening your phone it will automatically ask to save sim contacts to phone then press yes.


You can also transfer the content of your memory card from LG to Nokia by using your computer,just use multi-media card reader and copy everything on your LG memory card then paste it on you computer.Insert your Nokia memory card and then copy all important data from LG files to you current memory card.

Note : if you intend to copy application and games, might not working because the file format of LG is different from Nokia so expect some errors,sort of photo's and video is compatible.


Hope this solution helps.Thank you for visiting Fixya.

I have put my sim card into my samsung f480 but the contacts have not transferred over. I know that my contacts are definately saved to my sim, please help!!!


hi,

if you are sure that your contacts are in the Sim, you can copy it in your samsungs memory from your sim card. Some unit will show your sim contacts unless you transfer it in your phones memory.

you can check that option at the Contact or Phonebook menu of your phone.

Hope I get your problem.

Don't forget to rate me. Thanks.
