    Hi does anyone know if there is a way to sync your phone contacts with your sim card contacts?

    I don't mean importing/exporting specific/all contacts from your phone to you sim or vice versa, but I am looking for a way to change my sim contacts to look exactly like my phone contacts.

    Furthermore, how do I back my contacts up on my computer?
    How will I retrieve them later?

    if you want your sim contacts the same as your phone then delete all your sim contacts then export phone to sim.

    You can backup your contacts within kies.
    Orange customers can also make an online backup but other carriers and software can probably do the same.

    You can.
    Make sure sim contacts are included in your contacts display options. All the sim contacts will be shown with a sim icon. go into delete contacts tick all the ones with this icon and confirm deletion.
    all gone.

    Hey Hawker, thanks for the info.
    The only thing is I don't know how to display sim contacts.

    I go to menu>more>display options but the only thing that shows up under contacts to display are phone, gmail and skype.

    There is no option for sim for some reason.

    Does anyone know?
