How do I transfer data from this from does it have a sim card?
I DESPERATELY NEED to transfer date off my phone, mainly text mesasges, call records and a couple of pics. Number one I don't know if this phone has a sim card or not? Is there something that I can buy such as a memory card or something that will transport this info from my phone to either my computer or this memory card. I just need to get the information off the phone so I can get rid of the phone, but I have to have the data before doing so. PLEASE, can yo help me? I will pay for help.

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.

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.
There's a program that can reprogram or clone an existing SIM card especially if the SIM card is not working anymore. This can be seen in various forums online. If you're just concerned about transferring all your contact/address book information, you can simply delete all the record of your SIM card and then transfer the new records from your phone to your SIM. One last thing to not is that if your SIM cannot be detected on all phones, then the SIM maybe broken anymore and any data inside it cannot be retrieved anymore since it's a chip issue which cannot be fixed.
