Exporting Contact Phone numbers back to sim card

Hello,
Ok...I just sold my iPhone on ebay and I want to transfer all my newly added contacts from my iPhone onto my sim card so I can use my old cell phone (Waiting for 3G next month).  I thought it would automatically save them on my sim card, but about 20 of my new contact phone numbers and names don't show up when I inserted my sim card into my old Samsung phone.
What can I do to add these phones permanently on my sim card?

I want to transfer my number to a new iPhone and I don't remember my account number or PIN number. Can you help me to find this information?


If you haven't cut your SIM card for iPhone yet, you can take advantage of the SIM card to transfer contacts from Motorola to iPhone. You need to go to your Contacts app and choose Export Contacts to SIM. Then the contacts can be transferred to the SIM card. Now you can cut the card and install it in iPhone, and go to Settings > Mails, Contacts, Calendars, and scroll down to find Import SIM Card Contacts. Now you are able to import the contacts from SIM card to your iPhone.

Another method is using Gmail. Android users can take advantage of Gmail (or other emails provide contacts sync function) to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone. The following tutorial will show you how to do it:
  1. Log in Gmail on your Android phone, and check the "Sync Contacts" option (If you are first time to use this method.
  2. After Gmail Contacts synced with your Android Contacts, you should turn to iPhone, and tap Settings > Mails, Contacts, Calendars, and tap Add Account. Then choose Google, and enter your Gmail account.
  3. After adding Google Account, you can turn on Contacts, and iPhone will ask whether you want to merge with your iPhone contacts. Click Yes and the contacts will be synced to your iPhone.
With the sync function of Gmail, people are able to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone with ease. If you aren't using Gmail on your iPhone, don't worry, you can take advantage of other email services like Yahoo, Outlook and so on.
You can also take advantage of the third-party iPhone transfer software to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone directly. Among all the iPhone transfer programs, iTransfer is regarded one of the best.

I transferred all the phone numbers from my old sony ericsson cell phone to my sim card, but cannot figure out how to copy all the sim numbers onto my new sony ericsson vivas pro.


To transfer your contacts through the SIM card:
  1. Copy your contacts from your old phone to your SIM card. If you need help with this, please consult the old phone user guide.
  2. When the copying is done, move the SIM card to your new phone.
  3. Select Menu > Contacts.
  4. If the phone asks you to copy info from the SIM card, skip steps 5-10.
  5. Otherwise, tap Options > Settings > Contacts to display.
  6. Select SIM memory > OK, then tap Back.
  7. Tap Options > Mark/Unmark > Mark all.
  8. Tap Options > Copy > Phone memory.
  9. Tap Options > Settings > Contacts to display.
  10. Select Phone memory > OK, then tap Back.

Putting contacts on the SIM card


When I migrated from my Palm Centro (best smartphone ever) to my current BlackBerry, I did the following: 1) Export Palm contacts from the Palm Desktop software to CSV (comma separated values or tab-delimited text) format. 2) Import the CSV file to your Google Contacts account. 3) Wirelessly sync Google Contacts to your new phone using the free Google Sync app (link below). 4) Verify data was transferred appropriately.
Google Sync works with iPhones: http://www.google.com/mobile/sync/
You should be able to follow the same process for your Palm Calendar by exporting your Palm Calendar from the Palm Desktop software to a file (save the exported file to your desktop, or an easy to find location on your computer), then import the Calendar file into a NEW Google Calendar, not your primary calendar (in case there's conflicts or problems, you can delete the secondary Google calendar without losing your primary Google calendar items). Google Sync should allow you to choose more than one Google Calendar to sync with your iPhone.

Is it ok to change Sim card? if the sim in my iphone will be transfered to another phone will my contact be erase?


Before when phone memories were smaller, contacts were normally stored on the sim. However, if you consider the iphone, most of its contacts are already stored on the phone memory and not the sim.

most phones memories can be selected manually, either phone memory or sim.

if you are currently using your sim for your contacts and you are transferring to another phone, then your new phone will be able to use the contacts.

if you are currently using your phone memory for your contacts, then the contacts will be retained in your iphone and you won't be able to use them on your new phone.
