by jittus / July 24, 2011 10:13 AM PDT


Could someone please help me on how can I transfer my sim contacts to my phone memory?
Currently am able to view contacts, but am not able to merge the contacts as its in the sim memory. In my old phone I have saved multiple contacts under one name, when I transfered the contacts to sim and used in new phone its showning one by one.
Am using Samsung Galaxy POP s5570 with android Android 2.2 froyo.

Thanks a lot

Go to people, menu, then import/export and choose to export where do you like!

People Menu is the icon that looks like...

Just in case anybody is confused:

I thought it was worth mentioning that the "people, menu" is the icon on the bottom section of your android homescrean, its "second from the right", or "left of middle" and it looks like a basic graphic of a cartoon head and shoulders on a business card.

Don't use phone memory, Use a "cloud" based contact system

If using an Android phone, and very likely a WP7 or IOS phone, you need to be synched with GMAIL or similar program. I would never have contacts reside in phone memory or the sim card. If in Gmail, then synching your phone to your account will update all contacts. Only way to go.

I thought you had reservations about the cloud as well.

Egypt was a great wake call. We've had the BACK HOE calls too.

But for transfers it's a fine thing. Relying on it today is just not there.

That was my concern, hence the 'all eggs in one basket' comment.
