My Motorolaphone screen is totally black and discolored, so I'm transferring the sim card to an old phone until I can purchase a new one. Because I can't see the screen, I need exact instructions to put the address book onto my SIM card. I can get to the address book and address book options by myself, I just need to know how many times to click the down arrow and what to select. Please help! Thanks.

Step 1Remove the SIM card from your Motorola phone. The
SIM card is a small chip that is located under the battery in your cell
phone. After you've removed the SIM card from your Motorola phone,
remove the SIM card from your LG phone.
Step 2Insert the SIM card from your LG phone into your Motorola phone. Turn on the Motorola phone.
Step 3Press the "Menu" key and select the "Address Book" option.
Step 4Select "Options" by pressing the right soft key. The
"Select Multiple to" option will appear on the screen. Choose the
"Select Multiple To" option and then select "Copy to SIM to Phone."
Step 5Remove the SIM card that you placed in your Motorola
phone and insert it in your LG phone. After inserting the SIM card,
turn on your LG phone.
Step 6Click the "Menu" key on your LG phone and select the "Address Book" option.
Step 7Select "Options" and choose the "SIM Management" option.
Step 8Select the "Copy from SIM" option and choose "Select All."
Step 9Select the "Copy" option. Your contacts will be transferred from your SIM card to your LG phone.
You have not stated the Brand and the Model of your old phone.
anyway the basic procedure remains the same for every cell phone.
Transfer your all contacts in the old phone to your sim card.
Go to phone book/address book and then contacts.
On the drop down menu you will find 2 options i.e. Copy Sim to Phone and Copy Phone to Sim.
Click on Copy Phone to Sim.
All your contacts will be transferred to Sim.
Remove the sim from the old phone and insert it in the new LG phone.
Repeat the above steps.This time you have to select Copy Sim to Phone.
All your contacts will be stored in the new phone.
Go to your address book. Find the listing you want to transfer to your SIM card. Select it and then go to EDIT. Now scroll down to where it says STORE TO: It will either say PHONE or SIM. If it says PHONE you will need to select CHANGE. This will allow you to select between PHONE and SIM. Change it to SIM and click on SELECT. It is now saved to your SIM card. Have a great day!
It's not anywhere in the literature. Before you remove the sim from the old phone copy the address book into the old sim. Then take the old sim out of the old phone and then put it in the new phone. Copy from the old sim into the new phone. Then take out the old sim and put in the new sim and copy from the new phone into the new sim. Your all set.
1. From the standby screen (the first screen when you open your phone), go to the menu. 2. Scroll to the address book and press select. 3. Scroll to the address you wish to copy (or any address if you want to copy all of them) and press the menu key. 4. Go down to copy and press select.
5. Select "Entries" to copy just that one entry or "All to SIM" if you
want to copy all your addresses to your SIM card, or "All to Phone" if
you want to copy them all to your phone. 6. Select Merge or
Override. Merge will combine any addresses that are already on your
card with the ones you are now copying, Override will replace anything
that is already there with the ones you are now copying. Be careful in
deciding which you want to do since Override will delete anything
previously saved and merge will duplicate any that were already saved
and are being saved again.
There should be a menu that when you put in a simcard, go to your address book and you can select each contact off the card, then select copy to phone.
when you put back in your new sim card you have the option to transfer your contacts to the sim card, although you will then have duplicate copies of contacts and you will need to delete the contacts off the phone if you wish to keep them on the sim card only.
The razr that i had could only store 4 numbers on the sim card, your phone book is stored on your phone's memory not your sim. I'm pretty sure that you cannot transfer your phone book over to your sim card.
