      The phone then displays a list of your current contacts.

    2. Touch the box next to an individual entry.

      – or –

    1. Touch Copy to copy the selected numbers to the SIM card.

      The message Some info might be lost. Continue? message is displayed.

    Note: When storing an Address Book entry into the SIM card, note that only the name, phone number, group, and slot location are initially offered as fields (some SIM cards may allow an address as well). To save additional information for a particular contact, such as other phone numbers, or email, it is important to add new fields to that Contact information. It is also important to note that if you move the SIM card to another phone that does not support additional fields on the SIM card, this additional information may not be available.
