Default Sim card to phone transfer? How?

I have the Dell Streak 5 2.2 which no longer has that Sim card manager. I have all my phone contacts on my Sim card. The manual says that I can only add photos to contacts that are stored on the phone's memory. How do I transfer Sim contacts to the phone. I have already "exported" the Sim data to the SD card, but the phone still only recognizes the Sim contacts. Any ideas? Thanks.

It is better to have them as google accounts, because they are then automatically backed up. I also find them easier to manage.

If you have them as phone accounts and then anything happens to your phone, like losing it, then your contacts are gone.

There's an app on the market called 'Phone Contact Transfer' It will put all of your contacts from phone to phone directly.
