  • Importing SIM card contacts into iPhone Contacts

    I received my first iPhone 2 days ago and trying to start using it permanently. However, I have had to go back to my old phone as I can't see all my SIM card contacts on there. The contacts are on the SIM card and not the phone. When I put the SIM card in the iPhone, I can't see them. Does anybody know the best way to import those contacts and back them up?

    Thanks

    Don't know what iPhone you have but:
    Update : Starting iPhone firmware 2.0, Apple solved the SIM import issue by neatly integrating into the iPhone officially! Look for the option under settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendar -> import sim contacts

      Thanks Ossian. Took a few seconds. So easy when you know how.

      I have an iPhone 3G S.

          Your skills are better than mine. I managed to find articles regarding 3rd Party software but not the easy option. I'm sure I'll get the hand of the iPhone soon. Never used anything like it before.
