sim data to phone and vice versa

by midasthailand52 / January 2, 2013 8:48 AM PST

I move aroung a lot and change sim cards from Thailand/Malaysia and Australia, every time I change sim cards I lose information. How do I copy all data from the sim card onto the phone so that it is always in the phone regardless of the sim card inserted?

Sim data

The sim data is indeed contacts. When I take out the Thai sim and insert the Malaysian sim I lose all the Thai contacts so I need to know how to copy my contacts from the sim card to the phone?

I had hope the link would help but since it didn't I'd head to your carrier's counter and have them show you how.
