Problem copying contacts from SIM card to phone
I just got a Samsung Galaxy Y. I have all my contacts on the SIM card, and I want to import them. When I choose contacts->menu->import/export->import from sim, it comes with the option to save to phone or to gmail. Whatever I select here doesn't matter. After this, a screen occurs with at the top 'Importing from sim', but it finds no contacts to import!
So for some reason, the phone doesn't seem to be able to read the contacts from the sim card. I googled quite a while and found other people with similar issues on various android phones, but no working solution.
I tried setting the phone to factory defaults: No change.
I install an app 'sim contact manager' or something like that: It also finds no contacts.
When I put the sim card in my old phone, it really sees the contact on the sim card, so they must be there. Of course, I can write down all names and phone numbers (no export possibilities on my old phone) and re-enter them in the new phone, but I guess the import function should work...
Are there any suggestions that I could try?
Thanks a bunch!
