Many Mobile Telephones give an option to record personal numbers etc. into the phone memory or onto the SIM card. The SIM card often has more memory and this should be the chosen option. If you remove your SIM you should be able to access the telephone memory and see what is in it. Delete all the personal information, there should not be much on it. If you find that all your personal data is saved to the telephone, you should be able to save the information to the SIM, then remove the SIM and delete the data on the phone. If you are keeping the same number and same SIM, then your personal data will be available on your new phone. If you are changing your service provider and getting a new phone, by putting your old SIM into the new phone you can transfer the SIM data to the new phone and then onto the new SIM. After you should destroy the old SIM by cutting it up through the Electronic Chip. If you have to send it back send it in pieces.
The more modern android type phone will have an option to connect with a PC to recover your data. Alternatively, you might be able to email the data to yourself. After which you will need to either delete all personal stuff if you don't have a memory card in the phone. If you have a memory card just remove it and install it into your new phone, all your data should be there.
Either just transfer the SD card to the new phone and copy off what you need? Or get a USB SD card reader and use that or get a SIM card reader and use that or indeed put the old SIM in the new phone and transfer any data over and swap back. Or use software and hookup the phone to the PC via USB and copy the data over, then hook up the new phone to the USB and copy it back.
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.
If you don't have something like "Data Pilot" which has cables and software for backing up cell phone information...
Normally you would put your SIM card int he old phone, go to the contact/addressbook menu and look for an option for "Copy to SIM"... Once you copy your contacts to the SIM (there's a limit) then you put it back in your new phone. You can then leave them on the SIM or copy them to the phone in much the same manner.
From the main menu, Choose contacts Select options and Press Advanced Choose "Copy to SIM". Select one of the options that pop up. All the existing SIM card data is replaced when copying the contacts from the Phone to the SIM card.
Pictures and text message can't be saved to sim-card. You need to transfer these with memory card or to computer and from computer to other phone.
If you are replacing this old phone with a new one you can go to any Sprint store and they will transfer your data from your old phone to the new one for free. You can get a cable to transfer data from the phone to your computer, but they're pricey...about $50. Try Radio Shack or an online source like www.cellphoneshop.com. Take out the battery to check for a SIM card...you'll see it if it does.
