    Could you be a bit more specific? Do you already have the DHD or are you looking to upgrade from another handset?

    If you're upgrading from another handset, there is an option to import contacts from your old phone during the initial setup. If you have the DHD and want to back up your contacts, you do it like this -

    Open the People App/Phonebook --> Hit Menu --> Import/Export --> Export to SD Card, then select which accounts you want to backup.

    See the last paragraph.

    When you've got the new sim in just import instead of export and you should be set.

    Let me know how you get on. I had to factory reset my handset within days of having it and because I'd synced with my gmail account, it downloaded all of my contacts as soon as I connected it with gmail so you may be able to do the same. :)
