Store to SIM or Phone?

I have a question. Should I store my numbers to my sim card or to my phone? I was thinking at first to save them to my phone cause if I get a new SIM I'll still have my numbers. But then I thought what if I change phones...

Wheres the best place to save them, and if I did change phones, how could I switch all the numbers without entering them each by hand?

mine lets you copy them to sim or phone and vice versa - you can store a lot more ont he phone than on the sim though, so i recommend that.

I use the sim card, because if I did change phones I could just move sim card and they would be there


If you choose to use phone method (which is cool because you can do multiple numbers for same person, etc.) the only way you can transfer them is at the phone store where they have cords or buy a cord that will connect your phone to the pc, and backit up there, and then import it back the other way

Yeah, but if you copy all to sim and instead of saying

John Home
and John Cell

do John (Main Phone - ..., Cell Phone - ...)

when you transfer to sim it will lose the cell phone one..


..atleast mine did

yeah it might do depending on what software you get with it, you can download some for SE's called myphoneexplorer, otherwise i could only use the bluetooth for photos, vides, mp3s etc, not SMS or contacts. Dunno if there is similar for motorolas. Maybe some came with it.

I don't know what I save to, have used the same phone now for years.
If I was to change, I'd spend an hour entering everyones number again. May be a bit of hastle, but it would be for another few years of useage.

Why does your phone need a sim card anyway?

Every phone in the UK uses them, just holds your phone number on it, so you can get send and receive stuff, plus you can put it in other phones and use ur service on that phone straightaway.

Yeah, but they did that before.

I guess that allows you to get a new phone without having it activated at the store and stuff...

Yeah the simcard contains both your number and your phone network operator on it. You simply buy a mobile phone, then put your simcard in. It will then have the same number you have always had, and be the exact same network, with the same price plan or whatever.
I've had the one phone number now for about 7 years, gone through 3 phones. All of them are O2 pay as you go, ie, I can top up £10 in a shop, then I have £10 to spend on calls/texts (And I get 300 free texts). I prefer pay as you go over a contract, because I don't call many people from my mobile, prefer landline.

Some networks support sim cars and some don't. PCS networks don't usually support them, while GSM and its varients usually do

Verizon and Sprint/Nextel use CDMA which is integrated in the phone. If you get a phone from Verizon, has to be used on verizon, same with the Sprint/Nextel phones.

Where as if you get an unlocked phone (usually unbranded straight from the mfg.) you can pop in a sim card from any company that uses simcards and not have to deal with the features missing/added from the company and their logo and all that crap...

John where are you from, because in the uk we still use sim cards.

Anway it would be better to save them on the sim, say your phone was lost or something i don't think the guy who founds it will us the sim. He will Break it and use the phone. If he was a nice guy he will giev it back.
