    I had a similar problem, the phone complained it could not read the phonebook - wrong format or something. I used the PCStudio software to sync with my pcphone book which i had also synced with my old phone. Still have a problem with displaying te way i want though. Can't get the phone to sort phonebook on lastname.

Cannot copy contacts from phone to sim card

previously check the phonebook memory status of ur sim it might be full some old simcard provides very less contact storage varies from 10 - 250 for newer sims if sim is full then u can not copy contacts in it
or if it is not though then u can check ur sim by copying contact from inserting it in another phone if it works then ur mobile is faulty
Or check it vice versa
if this is helpful let me know regards

When I try to search for an entry it will not find it if the entry is in the sim card. Why? Is it a fault of the firmware? Is there an update?

go to "phonebook", then "more", then "settings", then "view phonebook from" and select "sim"or "all" or "phone" and see what happens.
I had all my contacts in sim and when all was selected the phone would not search. So I slelected from sim only and it works ok ???

You may have to copy all contacts to sim and work around it that way.
