How to transfer SMS from phone memory to SIM??

Im using Motorola C168..

Im planning to buy a new phone but I wanted to keep my old messages in my Motorola C168.

But I realised most of my SMS were stored in phone memory instead of my SIM card.

So is there anyway for me to transfer those SMS from phone memory to my SIM card? through these methods:

1) sending to technician?
2) using service command in the phone?
3) or any other option?

is it possible? Please help. Thank you.

Is it possible to take messages off this old phone and save to external drive - sentimental reasons!

Your phone appears to be non-smart old phone
Sony Ericsson T250i User Manual
Your phone does not have SD card.
Your message (SMS or MMS) ought to be on the phone memory.
You can transfer the message to SIM if not already one.
Then read the sim on newer phone.
There can be a difficulty though as most new newer phones cannot take big or regular sized SIM
Alternatively Forward the message from old phone to newer Android phone wirelessly and then store using cloud or dropbox

How do i transfer contacts and texts to my sim card

Dear user,

For transfer of phone numbers on SIM card you have to go to phone book menu and enter options , inside these option you may find copy phone numbers to SIM card or vice versa, its always good to keep SIM as default memory if you keep changing phones but at the same time you will have limited space and limited flexibility of data storage per contact

As far as transferring SMS on SIM I dobut if its possible now, one thing could be you set your phone now in such a manner that all messages get saved in the SIM memory, this setting maybe available in messages settings.

How to transfer sms from fone to memory card or how to use memory car for sms

When you go into messaging, on the message, go to options and click move. Then it should say move to SIM or move to USIM. That will transfer your message to your sim card. Sadly you can't use the memory card for messaging.
Hope this helps!

New Razr v3 Sim Phone address transfer

It's not anywhere in the literature. Before you remove the sim from the old phone copy the address book into the old sim. Then take the old sim out of the old phone and then put it in the new phone. Copy from the old sim into the new phone. Then take out the old sim and put in the new sim and copy from the new phone into the new sim. Your all set.

Less inbox capacity.

Isn't it the phonebook memory that can save up to 250 entries?
If it's the sim, what you have to do is transfer all important items to a different storage like phone numbers,emails,etc. Then delete all the entries in your sim and in your phone. Like a clean-up,next is insert our sim again and observe the performance of SMS memory, U better avoid downloads this time to see the problem.

The sim's SMS memory also depends on the phone you are currently using with your sim cause your phone might can't support such storage though it is a new unit.
Like for example if u'll use that sim to an old phone,the SMS memory will be limited.
U must also consider that new phones reserves less memory for messages than for the new application features. And 1 more thing,some phones has multiple inboxes up to 3 so the storage could be devided to 3 too. Check on that also.
There might be hidden files on your phone so better reset it.

C168 unlocking code!!

hello there....well its quite simple...there is nothing wrong with your phone ...its your SIM... if it is asking for a PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) your subscriber (AT&T) and ask them for PUK code,entering this code will reset your sim is free

If the error message is saying sim damaged call them and ask for a "sim replacement" you will get a new sim while you will retain the same number ,however you will lose the phone numbers and other data stored in sim,this can be free but it depends on the company and how 'customer friendly they are

if you have changed sim that could be because your phone is restricted to your original network provider...then call the and tell that you want to unlock it to all network...this is a chargeable service

Hope this help
