If you have a sim card copy them there, unless you have more than 250 contacts, you can do this by viewing contact, scrolling to # field press menu(trackwheel), select copy to sim phone book, select save - yes it is 1 by 1, also if multiple # for a contact each 3 must be seperately, or can sync to outlook on PC

I'm not sure if you can save contacts to disk. You should be able to back up everything on your Berry with the desktop manager software. Use the "Switch Device Wizard" option and click on switch BlackBerry devices. Hope this helps.

blackberry microSD card for phone book
I also want to use the 1.8 GB on the microSD card to store my address book. Right now I have used up about 50 MB of the 64 MB in the 8320 I have with about 1,300 entries from my address book and other stuff. I can't see any way to get the address book copied, which should be a routine process. Anybody have any ideas?

Address book to micro sd card
I have my email addresses, physicall addresses, extra contact information attached to the contacts in my Blackberry, when I tried to transfer the contact to my SIM card, it only transfers the numbers...... Is there anyway to transfer all the information of the contact. Possibly to an Micro SD card or to the SIM car??? Need a solution, please!!!!

Question : Why do you need this functionality?? If it is on your device, then why do you need it on microSD?
If it is for backup reasons, use DesktopManager... if it is for tranferring to another Berry... use DesktopManager.
An explanation of your full siuation would help so we can provide alternate solutions!No longer a CrackBerry addict. Moved to Android - could not be happier!

There is more than enough room in the device memory to store ALL of your PIM information. While I only have about 550 or so in my contacts list my father has over 4000 (yeah, straight from his office Outlook :/ ) and plenty of space to spare.
If memory is an issue for you I suggest looking into your emails and the attachments they have, your photos, ringtones, and songs. Those take up much more memory.
In regard to backups, just use the BB Desktop manager to do a full backup of the device and you can synchronize with Outlook while you are at it just to make sure you have everything safe.

Hoping someone can help.
Here's my situation. A friend had left his company and because he was not a T-Mobile user, he gave me his BB 8230 Edge. The problem is that his company had and IT Packet on the phone and Desktop Manager requires this password. Since he has left the company and does not remember the password, I need to find a way to back up my data prior to wiping the device. I have a large number of contacts and would like to avoid documenting each one of them if I don't have to.
Any help would be appreciated.

This berry policy is really lousy
Why don't we tell aloud clearly that you cannot copy all contacts to your simcard in one step but you can copy to another BB.
Basically it is a secret way of trapping the BB customer into buying another BB since the transferring of contacts will otherwise become a pain in the ****.
