It could be two things, first off make sure you are actually going to the sim card on the 1661, I believe you need to go into the settings of the address book and specify to copy from sim device to phone book, otherwise you will only see contacts stored in the 1661's flash memory.

If you are certain you are viewing the contacts on the device then it is a compatibility issue on the SIM device between the two phones. I recommend you take the two phones along with the SIM in question to your nearest wireless network provider office, they will be able to verify that it is either a compatibility issue, defective sim, or just a simple error in where the contacts are viewed.

This should cover ever possible scenario.

Thank you so very much for the opportunity, this should definitely help you out!

Thanks

Missing contacts, same sim card


You didn't save them to your SIM card on your old phone.
If you take your old phone & your new phone into a store you can ask them to switch the contacts over & they should be able to do it right then in there in just a few minutes.

You have to set the memory of your current phone, change it to sim memory so that you can retrieve the number save in your sim.

My nokla c5-03 couldn't show the caller's name though it's saved in my phone it's only show caller's no.


There are two reason for this: 1. The SIM card has problem. Try to use another SIM card
2. You have saved same no. in two different caller names. So phone doesnt show any of them.

Save all contacts to sim card


you can save all your contacts to you sim if your sim memory is not full. Follow these steps:

unlock keypad, select "contacts" option from menu then select "copy" option in "contacts". Selecting "copy" will left you with two options : 1. From sim card to phone.
2. From phone to sim card.

Then select "From phone to sim card". It will ask "One by one" or all.

You can select any option and contacts will be copied to your sim card. If its ask for "delete original" or "keep original" , its your choice to keep copy of contacts in sim card or not.

How do i save contacts to sim


N95 does not save contacts to sim automatically. But onnce you have saved a contact to your phone memory, then you can select OPTION and MARK the contact and then OPTION again and select copy to sim. You can do 1 or multiple contact copy to sim. But remember that the sim card holds only 250 numbers

Change from nokia n95 to new mobile want to save contacts to sim


You'll probably find they're already on the sim, if not here's how to copy them over.
Open contacts, options, SIM contacts, SIM directory; you should see all contacts that are on your sim. If there's none there, select back which will take you to your contacts; choose options again, scroll to mark/unmark press select then mark all, all contacts should now have a tick beside then. Then options again, copy & lastly to sim directory.

Contact problem


from what you are describing, I think you have 200 contacts saved to your SIM card and 3 ton your phone. Also your phone is set to show you contacts from the phone only. Go to settings under your contacts and select Phone memory as your contact source so that you can see them.
Also a SIM cards don't hold more that 200 numbers.
