Contacts How can I view either just the SIM card contacts or just the PHONE contacts rather than both at the same time?

Posted by Andy Collings on

  • bluca Nov 09, 2007

    I'm also really frustrated with the fact that I can't select between viewing just phone or sim contacts.. I've tried deleting all the SIM contacts as a last resort but the downside to this is that the phone is unable to identify incomming calls or SMS against the contact list..

    I don't really want to rely on my SIM memory for contacts as you lose the ability to store multiple numbers for each contact when you do this...

    Surely LG would not have designed the phone to have such a huge flaw? Can anyone suggest something else?

Trnsfer contacts to sim iphone 4

As a matter of fact, iPhone won't save contacts to SIM card. However, you can utilize an Android phone to finish this task. Just follow below steps.

Step 1. Go to the Contacts app on your iPhone, find those contacts you would like to transfer to SIM card. Then tap "Share Contact" and share these contacts via email.
Step 2. Download the vCards you just shared via email on your Android phone. Go to Contacts app on Android phone, then you can choose "Import from USB storage".

Step 3. Go to Contacts app to check if contacts have already been imported to your Android phone. Then go back to "Import/Export contacts" again, this time you should tap "Export to SIM card". Of course you need to put the SIM card into the Android phone before this step.

With this way, you can copy a limited number of contacts from iPhone to SIM card. This isn't a direct and simple way to transfer iPhone contacts to SIM card. You need the extra help of an Android phone, and you also need to type emails one by one to import SIM contacts. Although, it is a good way to back up the contacts by coping them to SIM card, you can also use other backup methods to save the contacts, like use data backup programs or back up them to the cloud.

Phone not recognising sim card. Window pops up which says 'insert sim card or to view a demo of this phone first press Demo"

Sim contacts may be dirty, either on the card or phone.
remove sim card and GENTLY rub a pencil eraser on the contacts to clean, then test. If you can access the contacts on the phone, do likewise. If not, then you'll have to use an Ether based cleaner, Like electrical parts spray ( available from your local auto parts store) .
be careful not to spray too much into the phone, as once the spray gets inside it takes longer to evaporate. You can counter the time by using compressed air to speed drying of the phone interior without taking it apart.
Hope this helps!!

I have saved my contacts from my old phone to the sim card, put the sim card in the atrix but no contacts have appeared on my phone

Go to the phonebook setting of your phone and configure the phone to view contacts from both your phone and sim memory.im sure the reason why you are not able to see your contacts is bcos the phone is configured to view contacts from phone memory alone. one love

My contacts won't show on my Nokia C3 phone. what am I gonna do with this?


If you are using outlook sync then you may need to check the compatibility of your phone whether it supports outlook. If you have the contacts on another phone , simple go to the contact settings copy the contacts to your sim card , insert the sim card to your nokia phone go to the settings and copy contacts from sim to phone. Make sure to change the contact display view to Phone if you have copied the contacts.
