How to Copy Your BlackBerry Contacts To The SIM Phone Book
Tested On BlackBerry 8100 – 8110 – 8120 – 8300 – 8310 – 8320 – 8700- 8800 – 8820 Devices

A SIM card stands for Subscriber Identity Module, on most mobile phones the SIM card is the place where it holds the address book and SMS messages. The SIM card is less important on the Blackberry because the address book is stored on the built-in flash memory or it can wireless sync your Outlook address book. But their may be a time where you want to retrieve the address book off a SIM, especially when you are a new Blackberry user coming from a regular mobile phone and want to import your contacts. We have already told you how to import your whole address book, but here’s how to selectively add a contact to your SIM card:

This ones tricky and depending on how many contacts you have might take a while to accomplish, but if you must have your contacts on your SIM then follow my guide -

  1. Start off by going into the Address Book
  2. Highlight a contact, now hit enter to get into the individual contacts screen
  3. Now hit the Menu key and choose “Copy to SIM Phone Book
  4. Hit the Menu key and Save it

Easy right? Here is where it gets tricky. In order for this to work you will need to have the Contacts number be stored under the “Work” category. Also, if the contact has multiple numbers, for some reason the BlackBerry wont allow to you to save it to the SIM.

Note: If you receive the message “Not enough room in SIM,” delete the SMS messages on the Phone screen and delete the entries in the SIM Phone Book.
