9. How to save contacts on your SIM card
It’s easy to save your contacts if you have enough space on your card and your phone has this option.
First, go to your address book by selecting ‘Menu’ and then ‘Contacts’.
Select ‘Options’ and ‘Settings’.
Now select ‘Copy to Phone / SIM’ with any similar options such as ‘Move to phone / SIM’ and ‘Save contacts to SIM’.
It will usually take a few minutes to complete. Some phones may ask you to select contacts if they cannot delete them all at once. If you select ‘copy’ instead of ‘submit’, you will see each contact showing twice. This is because one list is stored on your SIM and the other on your phone.
