Transferring SIM contacts

Miembro

When I bought my Storm 2 the saleswoman at the Verizon store transferred the contacts from my old SIM to the new phone.  Three days later I tried to look up a contact and was asked if I wanted to use the Blackberry SIM and I answered yes.  Viola--all my contacts disappeared.

 

I brought the Storm and the old SIM back to the same Verizon store so they could re-transfer the contacts.  They tried two different machines but couldn't make the transfer.  Too bad for me--I'd have to transfer them manually....

 

I put the old SIM back into the old phone to verify it still had the contact info, and it did, so I brought the old and new phones to another Verizon store to see if they could make the transfer, but they didn 't have the equipment.

 

Any suggestions of a way to make this transfer besides manually?

 

Gracias

Thanks for the info guys but the old phone is a Motorola RAZR V3xx, not a BB.  But I will take your advice to save my BB contacts to the Desktop Manager to prevent this in the future.

Bob, if you have Desktop Mgr. which comes with Storms, install it in your comp. Then there is a setting / program within there to tranfer from one BB to another BB. If this works please return here and tell us, and give me a Kudo which is to the left of my post.

Hola:

I think the only way you can save contacts to a Verizon Sim card is manually with the phone.  This can be a drag if you have a lot of contacts.  May I ask, are you saving contacts to the sim card for backup purposes?  If so, I would suggest backing up your contacts through Blackberry Desktop Manager to a file on your computer.  It would be safer if your phone is lost or stolen.
