Copy contacts to and from your SIM card
Your SIM card can store contact names and phone numbers. Copying contacts to and from your SIM
card allows you to easily transfer contacts from one device to another. When you insert a SIM card into
your BlackBerry device, you can view contacts that are stored on the SIM card in your contact list. You
can copy the SIM card contacts to your device memory so that the contacts are available to you even if
the SIM card is removed.
You can also use BlackBerry Link to back up your contacts on a computer.
