Question about Nokia Cell Phones

1 Answer

I accidently moved all my phone contacts to SIM and now cant retrieve them even when i try and press 'move from SIM to phone'. This is not so much a problem as i have all my contacts written down anyway, however as i add a new contact and save it to my phone, it saves but none of them show in my address book. can you help?

Retrieving deleted contacts


Unfortunately this depends on how you stored the contacts and where you deleted them from. Contacts can be stored on the SIM card or directly in the phones memory. You can also move and copy the contacts both ways. If you go into your address book, and select the menu option (typically the top left button), you should see something about SIM management. This option will allow you to try and retrieve what contacts you may have on the SIM card. Hopefully all you did was delete the contacts on the phone itself, and you still of most of them on the SIM.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Numbers are stored on my phone how can i retrieve them


If you have a phone that is broken, a screen that is not working or just want to move phone numbers to a new phone, this article will help you do that.

If your phone numbers are stored on a external SD card you can plug the SD card into your computer or another phone to retrieve the numbers. You will need a SD card reader or a computer that already has one. Some newer laptops have a SD card reader. You can find external SD card readers at local electronics stores. I recommend visiting www.newegg.com(card reader examples) for your hardware needs. I have used this site extensively and the customer service, pricing and products are A+.

If your numbers are stored on the SIM card, you can move the SIM card to a new compatible phone. The SIM card generally contains your phone number and other account information from the phone carrier, however, you can use it to store phone contacts as well.

Your local phone dealer like AT&T or Verizon may be able to help you retrieve the data or move it to a new phone compatible phone.

I hav a nokia 1108 phone... the batery had swelling... but the sim was operating.. but now i hav replaced a new battery and it says sim card registration failed.. even if i put the old battery, it shows...


hello,
have you tried the sim card on another phone? if you haven't, try it so you can retrieve you contact.

and as for the phone, the swelling of the battery have pressed the sim card making it have some space between it and the battery, so you can try to pad the sim card before inserting the battery.

best bet is for you to put the sim card in another phone. and if it cant retrieve the contacts, try to contact the communication service provider for a replacement of the sim so all those that have your contact can reach you in order to be able to get some of your contacts back. then always try to write down your contacts on a phonebook.

goodluck

Okay, if your phone still operates, and you just cant see anything, then here is what you press:
left soft key (menu, its the highest button on the left of the phone) down one and press middle button (address book) scroll down two or three (to make sure you are not on one of the stupid numbers att puts in the phone) left soft key (options) scroll down 13 spaces and right one space (move to sim) down one space and select (move multiple contacts) press the middle button and the left soft key (move all to sim card) press the left soft key one more time and your done! you should be able to remove the sim card and have all your contacts on there.  if you have a question, just let me know.
