    Hello, is there a way to copy my contacts from my Google account to my SIM card? I searched, but I could not find anything.
    My phone is Motorola G8 Power and I have Android 11 installed

    I don't know that phone, but check your Contacts app's settings and see whether it has an option to export contacts to the SIM. Not all do these days - SIM storage is extremely limited, both in capacity and in what you can store, so most modern phones run exclusively off contacts stored in internal memory - but if it has the option that's where I'd look.

    (I've not used SIM contacts for a decade now: when one of my SIMs died I never bothered copying anything back onto the replacement. Where I don't want to rely on some corporation's servers, or have contacts whose details I don't want to share with Google or similar, I can export to vcf as a backup that can be loaded into any contact management system, and hence is more flexible than a SIM card and without the limitations that brings).

    Hello, it has an option to export, but no option to export to the SIM. I can only export it as .vcf. I have a classic phone(Nokia 105), which has no option to import a .vcf file
  4. There is an application in the playmarket. Or try downloading everything to a а flash USB stick. I've been doing that already
