Saving contacts is probably the most important feature in a mobile phone. With time, this feature has entirely changed. In the latest phones, one can save phone number, picture, email address and relevant detail of every contact.
However, such advanced options are usually available, only when you save contacts on your mobile phone. If anybody has saved all his contacts on the Sim card, he will not be able to add any details, expect the phone number.
It does not mean that you should not save your contacts on the Sim. Saving contacts on the card has plenty of advantages. For example, you have dozens of important phone numbers saved on your phone, and it stops working due to some technical issues. You would be left with nothing, but disappointment.
Even if you repair your mobile phone, the entire data will be lost. So, the best option is to save your contacts on your Sim card, so that you could put the card into another phone, and avoid the problem.
Similarly, if you want to change your mobile phone, you must copy the contacts to Sim card. Those who wanted to save phone numbers on Sim card had a few issues in the past. The older didn’t have that much space, and the user would run out of it after saving a few contacts on the sim card. Therefore, one could only add 100-250 numbers on the card.
However, the latest technology has solved this issue. The new Sim cards, even Micro and Nano, have sufficient space to carry thousands of phone numbers at a time.
For Blackberry users, copying contacts to Sim card is not a tricky task. Blackberry provides multiple options, when it comes to transfering contacts from phone to Sim. One can import the entire phone book, as well as selectively add a contact to the Sim card. The procedure is almost identical in both situations.
