Moving contacts from your BlackBerry's internal list of contacts to your SIM card is a quick and easy way to back up your phone book. Names and numbers of important contacts can be saved on the SIM, but be aware that information like e-mail addresses and birthdays cannot. BlackBerry smartphones allow you to copy an individual entry to the SIM---there is no way to copy all your contacts at once.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Scroll to the Address Book icon on your BlackBerry and click to open it.

  2. 2

    Highlight the contact you wish to move to the SIM card and click to open it.

  3. 3

    Press the "menu" key. A list of options will appear---scroll to and select Copy to SIM Phone Book.

  4. 4

    Press the "menu" key. Select Save. The contact is saved to the SIM card.

Tips and warnings

  • To view the numbers on your SIM card, open your Address Book, press the "menu" key and choose SIM Phone Book.
