    May this is ready said somewhere, but nothing has really come up in the few searches I've done.

    Every time I enter a new contact info in the address book it save the new entry to the SIM card. Is there a way to default it to the device instead of the sim card?

    If you create a contact on the Z10 it will automatically save it on the sim card and as a local contact, as well as in any accounts you sync to, and they will all be linked. You can delete the sim and local contacts if you want (I don't keep any contacts on my sim card, or local for that matter, only on my Exchange account). If you have an account that you are syncing your contacts to (gmail, Exchange, etc.) and you create the contact outside of your Z10 (on the web or in Outlook or on another device) it will not save another version to your sim or local, it will save it only to that account in your Z10 contacts. At least this is how I think it works.

    Well I tried different ways to do it and it always save to the sim only.

    We should have the ability to choose and not default auto to sim.

    There has to be a way. If not, the BlackBerry team need to add the feature.

    I just go in and delete all the SIM card entries after adding new contacts. A bit of a nuisance, but manageable until this gets fixed by BlackBerry.
