changing contract, new phone gets delivered in 6 days, the sim card i have now will store the numbers on it for another 7 days if im lucky.

is there another way instead of me writing down each phone number by hand that i can store the numbers somewhere and transfer the number to my new phone? it has bluetooth but it wont send it to my computer for some reason

cheers

Try transferring the info from the simcard to the phone memory and then using the bluetooth to transfer to your computer.

Other than that you could buy a simcard reader from somewhere like Maplins

About £10-00 Hope this helps

why will your sim card be deleted before you get your new phone?

Even if you dont have access to the phone network you still have access to your names and numbers!

i dont know y, just is

Well I've had plenty of different sim cards in the past and I've never known one to be deleted when a contract ends!

Yep :thumbsup:

You can turn it on and view your phone book/messages etc!

Just can't make/recieve any calls/messages :thumbsup:

Just SOS calls!

Try doing it from your old sim card to your new phone - your names and numbers *wont* be deleted and it should be a doddle!

Then, once they are on the phone memory you should be able to transfer them to the sim memory of your new sim (should you want to!)

Or alternatively, do what Bizarra did and go to a phone shop and they'll do it for you! :thumbsup: SORTED! :thumbsup: :D

If both your phones have bluetooth can't you just "beam" the address book between phones. I know SonyEricssons have a "Send All" option in the address book menu (but I'm not sure of other manufacturers). I've done this between old and new phones a few times in the past and even transferred all my contacts to my PDA rather than messing about.

Another thing to try is put your new sim in the old phone (assuming the old phone is unlocked or on th same network), copy all the contacts to the new sim and then put your new sim in your new phone.
