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.
