Yes I believe so. Most phones these days store all the numbers in the phone and you must manually transfer them to the sim card. Then by putting the sim card in your new phone you will have your numbers. You can generally then transfer the numbers to your new phone, as it is handy to have them in more places than less. This way you have the freedom to change sim cards but always have access to those numbers for example.

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.
When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :- This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone. They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone. Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.
Here is where you can get an incredibly cheap Sim card reader, to read the numbers on the old card and use your computer to transfer them to the new Sim card: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.6641
Transfering from phone to sim is not a good idea since the sim holds 250 numbers and seperates each number on your phone book in case you have 2-3 numbers on the phone under one name. This way some numbers might get lost. Try downloading Motorola phone tools to your computer (copy and paste to your browser: http://www.brothersoft.com/motorola-mobile-phonetools-61039.html )Then you need to update it several times to the latest version. Then simply follow instruction to back up all your data. Please write me if you need more instructions.
