Hi fragglewise ,

what i suggest for you to do is insert the sim card into your old phone and transfer all the contacts into the sim card. after that insert the sim card into your new phone and find the option wher eyou can copy the contacts in the sim into your phone.

if that does not work then that means the sim card cannot store contacts.

another option is to place the sim card in your old mobile and write down all the numbers that you NEED on paper and then later type it all down on the new phone.

i hope this helps, good luck!

How do I clear all personal data, before returning the phone?


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.

Phone has died and I need my phone contacts


The only option in this case is to have the phone repaired and retrieve the numbers by transferring it into your sim.

I have an LGL75C with new sim card and cannot switch apps from phone memory to sim card


Do you mean from internal memory to SD card?Some apps can not be moved to SD cards.Also if you replaced your sim card the apps are on the old card.You would have to backup your apps from the old sim card to the external SD card then re-install them.Some cell providers have online back up that you can use.Good luck.

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.

MODEL NOKIA 6021 CONTACTS STORED IN PHONE MEMORY DELETED BY MISTAKE HOW CAN I RETRIEVE IT?


H,

Once you delete the phone numbers from phone then it is not possible to retrive the phone numbers.

If you saved the numbers in SIM card then you can copy to phone memory.

To copy contacts from SIM card to phone,Contacts > Copy. You can copy names and phone numbers from the phone contact memory to the SIM card memory or vice versa.



Thank You

My old LG cell phone (LGCU400) broke and was replaced with a newer model (LGECU515). I put my old sim card in the new phone but I cannot retrieve any of my contacts/info from the sim card. Is there...


Hello!
I went to the AT&T/Cingular store and they tried hooking my broken phone to their system but could not retrieve any #s (they were saved to my phone not my SIM). They told me there was no other way to retrieve the #s and that a computer cable wouldn't work bc their system would've been able to retrieve them. I knew there had to be some way of retrieving them bc I could still turn my phone on- the top 1/2 (screen) had just broken off.
It finally dawned on me to look at my husband's phone (we had the same one), write down the buttons to press & the # of clicks per button on my old phone, in order to blindly go through my entire contacts list and save each one to my SIM card. Approximately every 25 contacts I saved I'd switch the SIM card to my new phone and make sure they were all saving correctly. I'm currently still transferring all 137 contacts- grueling but well worth it. This only works if your old phone will still turn on & function even if you can't see/use the screen.
***Make sure your phone's saving your contacts to your SIM and not your phone- I thought mine was and it was one rude awakening today when I found out otherwise! I hope this helps!
