    Hello, I own the Galaxy Spica and am wondering if there is a way to access my SIM card memory through the phone...

    I keep getting a msg that says i need to delete some messages on my sim card. Its becomming a big problem because i cannot recieve any txt msg's at all now...even when i clear all my threads on my phone.

    Whats going on here? Why is it saving msgs to my SIM card? Is there a way to change this? Or a way i can access my SIM SIM card is about 2 years old and has been used in 2 other phones.

    Run Messenger
    Menu Key / Settings
    and scroll down to Manage SIM card Messages.

    Yeah when i go there it says i have none. I ended up charging my old phone and putting my sim card in there and deleting everything off it.

    Now how do i restore my contacts from my phone to my SIM? Its like this phone wasnt even made to have a SIM card on it, it has no functions for the SIM card besides deleting messages....

    Open Contacts.
    Across the top, choose Contacts Tab
    Press Menu Key

    Three choices

    Import from SIM Card.
    Import from SD Card.
    Export to SD Card.

    Hope that helps.

    It dosnt show any of that for me.

    When i open the menu from contacts it only gives me "Import contacts" when i go there it just says "SIM card is empty." If i press menu it gives me "Import all".

    This is becomming frustrating! :(

    You defo sure your SIM card has contacts on it.

    Sounds very much like you need to go to your old phone and copy contacts from Phone to SIM card.

    Yeah it seems that way but i cleared everything off my old phone. My contacts are saved on my new phone but it wont let me put them onto my SIM card through it.

    And i keep getting that same msg saying my SIM card is full and to delete old messages...and when i go click on the notification to delete them, it says there are no messages.

    I'm wondering if i should just take this phone back tho, i like it but im also having issues with the sound aswell. With or without headphones its like the audio makes "cracking" sounds similar to a record player. I just got this phone about 3 weeks ago and its already passed its "used" phase but im wondering if i have enough reason to trade it in as faulty because these issues are making my phone less and less usefull to me.

    I had the same issue with mine, once I had txfered all my contacts from sim to handset I had to go to my gmail account and change all of my contacts type from 'Other' to 'Mobile'.

    Once I had done this, I could send sms direct from messaging as the although I have noticed that the contacts I have set to 'Home' (landlines) do not appear within messaging.

    In order to send messages to these numbers I need to go direct to contacts and select the number :(

    I think you by default you would have saved settings that it would save in the sim but when the sim memory is full it directly get saved into phone, i think it would be the phone issue.

    previously the messages were saved directly to phone internal memory but now i dont known why the messages are saved to SIM card instead of phone memory.
    but when sim memory gets full i cant even send or retrive any messages......:eek::eek:

    is there any way to set the messeags memory to phone memory instaed of SIM card???

    i known there is no way to save the message directly to SD card but i there is a way to save it to Phone memory atleast.....

    i dont to backup sms and restore ...i want the phone to directly save it to phone memory as it was doing before......
