- i personally think it's absurd that RIM doesn't support some type of transfer all to sim and vice versa feature...i've had a lot of simple phones in my day and they could all copy the entire address book to and from the sim card with ease
the curve is a great phone but that is a feature that can cause problems for people. my only suggestion is make sure you sync the BB contacts with outlook so that you can sync them with your new phone in the future...of course, you'll have to pray that your new phone supports syncing with the Compy01-08-08 11:15 AM
- pfftt. The curve is way more advanced that just being able to save your contacts to your SIM. Heck, all you can save is one number per contact, and none of the addresses, email addresses, etc. Most people would be a fussin' then that "RIM did get all my addresses, only my phone numbers" blah blah.
It works the way it is was designed, which is much more advanced than the former.
For your car, what if they left the option there for a horse team harness and a mule diaper, just in case some user demanded they still wanted to hook 6 horses or oxen to pull... would that make sense?
Technology advances... please don't beg for it to go backward.01-08-08 11:34 AM

Let me know when you discover a way to add more information to a SIM card;
iirc SIM cards are only designed to hold simple entries that only have a name and a phone number.
update: Yes, but also SMS history (I forgot about that)Most SIM cards will orthogonally store a number of SMS messages and phone book contacts. The contacts are stored in simple 'Name and number' pairs: entries containing multiple phone numbers and additional phone numbers will usually not be stored on the SIM card. When a user tries to copy such entries to a SIM the handset's software will break them up into multiple entries, discarding any information that isn't a phone number. The number of contacts and messages stored depends on the SIM; early models would store as few as 5 messages and 20 contacts while modern SIM cards can usually store over 250 contacts.
